Drawing is the first stage of a successful watercolour painting, yet it is also the most easily forgotten. Peter Woolley guides the beginner through simple exercises and extended demonstrations to learn effective pencil and watercolour techniques. Drawing Towards Watercolour is the pain-free way to improve your watercolour paintings. Packed with useful advice and simple demonstrations, the artist will soon learn effective techniques to paint achievable scenes. All popular areas of watercolour are covered - trees, mountains, water, skies, figures and buildings - each accompanied by sketching exercises, followed by watercolour exercises, leading to the development of a finished picture.
Peter Woolley has been a professional watercolour artist since 1986. His original work can be found in private collections all over the World, and many of his paintings are available as Limited Edition Prints and Cards. He tours extensively and runs regular tuition courses. He lives in Derbyshire.
