The What to Paint series is perfect for readers with some painting skills and experience, who are looking for inspiring painting subjects. Each book has 24 beautiful full-page size paintings, a colour palette for each one and informative captions pulling out details, tips and techniques used in various parts of the painting. At the back of the book there is a free outline for each painting for readers to transfer or scan on to paper. There are also instructions on transferring the images, and on selecting parts of the outlines to create new compositions.
Watercolour artist, Peter Woolley, provides a stunning range of paintings encompassing a variety of scenes from gentle slopes and rolling hills to dramatic peaks of far off mountain ranges. Every painting is accompanied by outline transfers, which are ideal for beginners who want to get started painting landscapes without requiring the necessary drawing skills.
