The Ready to Paint series provides six tracings for readers to pull out and transfer on to watercolour paper. There is one for each of the five step-by-step demonstrations, plus a bonus tracing of the inspirational painting in the Introduction section. Geoff Kersey is an expert draughtsman and his skilful drawings of famous New York scenes provide the basis for five detailed and realistic paintings. The clear step-by-step photographs explain the painting process in great depth and make it easy for readers to reproduce all of the projects, which include iconic scenes such the Statue of Liberty, Central Park and the Brooklyn Bridge.
Geoff Kersey is an experienced watercolourist and is much in demand as a teacher and demonstrator. He lives and works in Derbyshire where he has a studio, and he exhibits extensively. He has made over 30 watercolour DVDs and contributes to various art publications.
