This encyclopedia is an essential reference guide for all artists who enjoy painting landscapes in watercolour. The first part of the book is dedicated to tools and materials, working methods and colours. A basic techniques section then provides tips for mixing colour, wet in wet, flat washes, masking, sponging and much more. Further chapters in the book provide you with step-by-step, easy-to-follow demonstrations of how to paint different objects and subjects; from bridges, cliffs and clouds through to storms, sunsets and shadows. This unique reference guide will teach you how to paint over ninety different landscapes. Finally, the 'themes' chapters show a gallery of paintings in which you can see many different pictorial approaches to landscape, as well as a variety of subject matter.
