Coastal Landscapes in Watercolour – Book Review

A good beginners guide to the subject, enabling total beginners to create a satisfying picture. The tracings allow accurate drawings to be created which are then filled in with watercolor paint according to the step by step instructions. 

What makes this book just that little bit more than painting by numbers is the help given with technique thus allowing the painter to improve their skills, adding atmosphere and drama to the painting. 

Details of how to create six very different types of coastal scenes are provided: saltmarsh, windmill, cliffs, stormy coast, Lindisfarne Castle and a scene showing a barge in a creek. 

Information is broken down into useable components, with plenty of good advice and help along the way.  Each step is accompanied by a photograph ensuring that you clearly see just what and how to do the next step.
