This book is designed specifically for beginners who want to paint hills and mountains, but whose drawing skills let them down. By providing pull-out tracings of each of the five projects, you can simply transfer the drawing to your watercolour paper following the easy instructions provided and then concentrate your efforts on the painting techniques. There are five projects, each with a tracing and detailed, step-by-step instructions, plus a bonus tracing so that you can reproduce the painting shown on the introductory page. Each painting is A3 size (42 x 29.5cm; 16 x 11iin). There is also a helpful section on what materials to use.
Arnold Lowrey has been painting in a variety of media for over twenty-five years. His motivation has been the use of light in painting, but he now experiments more with colour and texture. His seascapes are especially vibrant and full of movement. Arnold also likes painting still life, landscapes, portraits and abstracts. He exhibits his paintings in Wales and London. Arnold holds regular weekend workshops and weekly painting courses, residential watercolour courses and demonstrations for Art Societies. He is also a painting demonstrator for several art material suppliers. www.lowrey.co.uk
