The Magic of Watercolour by James Fletcher-Watson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The beauty and versatility of watercolour have always fascinated artists, delighted by its freshness, luminosity and ease-of-use. Now James Fletcher-Watson has prepared the ultimate analysis of this medium and the techniques involved so that all watercolour enthusiasts will be able to master and enjoy their chosen medium. First reviewing the roots of the English watercolour tradition, the author then takes a practical and informative look at materials, subject choice, how to paint landscape features, weather conditions, buildings and different methods and techniques of composing paintings and using colour. His excellent paintings, including many stage-by-stage series, complement the imaginative yet lucid text, and the generous number of colour illustrations allows the beauty of watercolour to be fully demonstrated.
