About the Author

Arnold Lowrey has been painting in a variety of media for over twenty-five years. His motivation has been the use of light in painting, but he now experiments more with colour and texture. His seascapes are especially vibrant and full of movement. Arnold also likes painting still life, landscapes, portraits and abstracts. He exhibits his paintings in Wales and London. Arnold holds regular weekend workshops and weekly painting courses, residential watercolour courses and demonstrations for Art Societies. He is also a painting demonstrator for several art material suppliers. www.lowrey.co.uk

Inspiration and Instruction in Watercolour Arnold Lowrey lends his 25 years of experience in painting varied seascapes, portraits, and abstracts in this detailed instructional book with 70 step-by-step photographs and beautiful finished products. This book makes a great introduction to the aspiring watercolor artist and provides enough basic instruction for a beginner to learn how to paint stunning seascapes and spacious skies without stepping into a classroom. After thoroughly practicing the techniques of Zoltan Szabo who teaches watercolor painting of water and sky in Painting Little Landscapes I was excited to find a book dedicated to this genre. The sea and sky are difficult to capture in the watercolor medium, but Lowrey teaches smoothly, and painters of all levels will enjoy the inspiration in these pages.
