Watercolour is a challenging and exciting medium with its loose washes and beautiful colours. Richard Bolton explores its versatility and shows how to create a whole range of effects, from dry on dry brushwork and wet into wet, to splattering, scumbling and split brush techniques. Using over sixty step-by-step photographs, he demonstrates how to paint texture, atmosphere, reflections, light and shade. Both beginners and artists with some experience will find this a valuable and inspirational guide.
