Watercolour offers great potential for expression. Its fluidity, full colour range, generous spread and variety of marks can portray a likeness, a response, a feeling - even the notions of time and speed. This book is a practical guide to watercolour painting and more. It explains the importance of colour, tone, shape, texture and scale through exercises and shared techniques, but it also encourages the artist to express sensations and ideas in watercolour - and by exploring the joy of the medium, to develop handling skills, confidence and a unique painting 'voice'. Includes: getting started; materials, fundamentals and mark-making; ideas to trigger the imagination for developing personal style; a variety of images to inspire and encourage; and help and advice throughout to practice new skills and gain confidence with a medium that has the potential magnificence of a 'full orchestra', yet can be slipped into the pocket.

In EASTER AT TOBRUK Christianity and war collide in an Australian context. With engaging candor the novel explores changing values in our society since the Second World War. The narrative focuses on two Easters, that of 1941 when Australian troops entered Tobruk in North Africa, and another fifty years later. The main character, Rob, finds himself caught in an improbable time-warp, breathing colour into events and characters too often rendered with historical dispassion.

Die russischen Landschaften gehören zu den schönsten der Welt, mit den berühmten Wildblumenteppichen in den Wäldern im Frühling und der eisigen Wintertundra, die das Vordringen Napoleons und Hitlers vereitelte, bilden sie die Kulisse für so viele bekannte Szenen der russischen Literatur. Und doch wurden sie erst durch die Hand des Malers Iwan Schischkin (1832-1898) unsterblich, indem er wie kein anderer vor oder nach ihm den Zauber und die Majestät der russischen Landschaften auf die Leinwand bannte. Irina Shuvalova und Victoria Charles untersuchen in dieser umfassenden Studie die herausrageenden Werke Schischkins.
