Book Review: The Paint Pad Artist - Watercolour Landscapes
Aimed specifically at artists who want results fast, the Paint Pad Artist series uses pre-printed sheets of Artists' quality watercolour paper, with initial outlines for each of the six step-by-step projects, so that you can start to paint straight away.
Written by professional artist and tutor, Grahame Booth, The Paint Pad Artist: Watercolour Landscapes, begins with notes on how to use the paper to achieve the best results, as well as how to copy the outlines should you want to try the projects again and improve on your first attempts. A section on the materials you'll need is complemented with guidance on basic techniques, before you get underway with the projects, which get progressively harder as you work your way through.
The Paint Pad Artist: Watercolour Flowers is part of the same series. Written by artist and tutor, Julie King, the book follows the previous format - beginning with how to use the pre-printed watercolour paper, discussion of the materials and equipment needed plus guidance on basic techniques - followed by six step-by-step flower projects to work through.
