Painting Still Life in Watercolour
|SIZE:||280 x 220 mm|

Still life painting is a beautiful, tranquil art which is as rewarding for the novice as for the experienced artist. This practical book captures the essence of still life and uses a wonderful array of subjects to celebrate its possibilities in watercolour: subjects that range from a collection of curiosities brought back from a walk on the beach and a pile of fruit and vegetables unpacked on the kitchen work top, to a more formally arranged group of carefully chosen objects.
This book guides you from the beginning stages of painting a single object to more challenging and complex groups, and finally to a range of approaches to abstract painting.
Compositions include fabrics, china, glass, flowers, fruit and vegetables. Advice on lighting and backgrounds. Techniques to help loosen up your style. A range of approaches to handling watercolour.
