Noel Gregory returns to the Ready to Paint the Masters series with a book on J M W Turner, the 'painter of light'. 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 four step-by-step demonstrations, plus a bonus tracing of the inspirational painting in the Introduction section, and full instructions on how to transfer the images. People who want to learn to paint without relying on their drawing skills have everything they need in this book.
Noel Gregory studied at High Wycombe College of Art and Bournemouth Teacher Training College. He owned an art gallery near Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire for twenty five years, dealing with Victorian pictures and later his own work. He now makes a living as an artist, specialising in oil painting, and sells his work internationally. Noel lives in Spain.
Admirers of Turner's work will want to reproduce the Master's iconic paintings in the step-by-step demonstrations. There are six tracings to pull out so that readers do not need to rely on their drawing skills - one for each of the five demonstrations and one bonus tracing. Noel Gregory's infectious enthusiasm and detailed description of his painting techniques make it easy for readers to reproduce the incredible paintings.
