9780007113132: Learn to Paint Buildings in Watercolour: Everything You Need to Know to Get Started

Buildings are a very appealing subject for many amateur painters, but sometimes the thought of having to master perspective can deter them from putting buildings into their pictures with confidence. In this book, Richard Taylor covers all the essential aspects of painting buildings in watercolour - including how to simplify the subject of perspective - and provides practical advice on techniques, colour, light and shade, composition and texture. A wide range of different buildings is included in the book, from country cottages and farm buildings to urban terraces, churches and shop buildings. Richard also looks at details, such as balconies, steps, archways, chimneypots and railings, and the additional subjects that enhance any view of a building, such as people or vehicles. Tips and step-by-step demonstration paintings are also included.
