This comprehensive step-by-step guide to producing landscapes and seascapes in watercolor is a natural progression in learning from Matthew Palmer's previous title Watercolour for the Absolute Beginner (9781844488254). It explores in more detail the key techniques used in watercolor painting, including the application of resists; color mixing; applying natural-looking foliage to trees and woodlands; use of dry-brush technique in depicting intricate detail, and using scratch-out techniques to add sparkle and movement to water. A six-step exercise helps demonstrate the stages of creating a landscape scene of snowy hills and dales - including laying the initial wash, lifting out highlights on the hills, and applying shadow. The book also features six full step-by-step projects to help readers develop their watercolor painting skills, featuring a waterfall scene, a poppy field with country cottage, a Mediterranean seascape, and New York in autumn-time; each accompanied with a full-size outline. Matthew Palmer's Step-by-Step Guide to Watercolour Painting is the perfect companion for artists who have covered the rudiments of the medium but are keen to improve their skills, develop their own style, and progress further on their journey to painting success. This book features a link to a 'live' video demonstration by Matthew Palmer himself, hosted exclusively by the SAA.
