First published in hardback in 1996, this book explains how landscape painting can be interpreted through the media of pen and watercolour wash. Includes information on selecting and trying out materials, with step-by-step demonstrations. The effects of seasonal change and location on landscape are discussed and tips are given for improvement.
This work suggests creative opportunities with familiar materials which will expand the repertoire of the watercolourist and inspire all artists - whatever their forte - to develop new and exciting approaches to their work. Pen and wash fuses the essential characteristics of both drawing and watercolour painting, uniting the precision of the pen with the spontaneity of the brush. For those who have not tried the medium before, the author includes comprehensive information on selecting materials and simple exercises designed to reveal scope and flexibility. Step-by-step demonstrations and projects have been devised to encourage fluency but the emphasis is always on the development of individuality and self-expression.
