Even if you have never picked up a paintbrush before, Geoff Kersey shows you how to paint convincing seascapes in watercolour using just three brushes, three colours, a plastic palette and a watercolour pad.
Only students' range watercolour paints are used, yet from these Geoff shows you how to paint nine realistic watercolour scenes. There is no off-putting colour theory or long-winded mixing information, but a practical absolute beginner's course that shows the three colours in action. You need only three affordable brushes: no. 10, no. 4 and no. 2 rounds in a synthetic range, to achieve all of the paintings shown. Let Geoff Kersey build your skills through nine easy exercises, starting from the simplest of scenes, resulting in seascapes you'll be proud of. With clear advice, step-by-step photographs showing simple techniques, how to trace and transfer a drawing, and finished paintings shown full size in the book for guidance, you will have everything you need to get painting.
Colours used: ultramarine, candium yellow pale and light red.
Brushes used: Round brushes no. 10 (Large), no.4 (Medium), and a no.2 (Small)
