Overview

A unique guide that will teach complete beginners how to paint a beautiful floral watercolour in just one weekend. Beginners recognise that they need to acquire basic painting skills - but at the same time they are eager to produce their first finished painting. This popular 'weekend' formula allows them to do both in a limited amount of time - to build skills gradually and to produce an attractive, frameable painting that they can hang on their walls by the end of the weekend. The author starts by introducing the materials required, and then leads readers through a series of watercolour technique exercises designed to provide a basic grounding in the skills needed for this subject area. This instruction is followed by six weekend projects for painting a range of popular floral subjects: a single flower; a group of white flowers; an indoors still life; an outdoors close-up; autumn flowers; and wild flowers in the landscape. Each course starts with practice exercises to be completed on the Saturday; readers are then ready to complete the full watercolour painting on the Sunday. Clear instructions accompany step-by-step photographs throughout, and technical information is given in special feature boxes. Jill Bays in the author of many highly successful book on art including The Watercolourist's Garden and Drawing Workbook. Much of her work depicts the natural world around her - from garden or greenhouse flowers to local landscapes and visiting wildlife. She is a regular contributor to art-teaching magazines and partworks, teaches classes and holiday courses, and is well known to the wider public through the publication of greetings cards. She lives in Weybridge, Surrey.
