Painting the British Isles by Ashley Jackson
Travelling to 12 locations, Ashley Jackson takes readers on a watercolourist's journey through the British Isles. With a map showing how to get to each place, a short historical description of the region, and workouts to show each step, he provides a simple, practical guide to watercolour painting. The great variety and changing moods of the British Isles offer a great challenge to the artist, and the book highlights the different demands on the painter of each landscape, and the variety of techniques that can be employed. It shows how to capture a particular moment, so that readers can relive it each time they look at the painting, and thereby develop their own individual styles.
