A practical, structured course for watercolour painters with some experience - continuing where the "Watercolour Landscape Course" left off. Illustrated with David Bellamy's evocative watercolours, the book follows a similar approach to the previous course and is divided into four main sections: the preparatory planning stages, with advice on choosing materials and working on location; guidelines on how to give your paintings more impact through imaginative composition, lighting and mood; more exciting watercolour techniques; and specific projects and exhibition work. Also included are a number of practical exercises, relating to paintings featured in a gallery at the end of the book, and several step-by-step demonstrations.

In Developing Your Watercolors, the emphasis is on the importance of direct observation and those techniques that will enable you to build on your existing skills. The book is designed to encourage a sense of achievement at every stage. The first section looks at suitable art materials and getting the most out of sketching and painting a location, while the second part is concerned with using source material effectively. Bellamy then moves on to a discussion of color and techniques and concludes with suggestions for continuing your progress and exploring new directions. Superbly illustrated with David Bellamy’s own paintings, this is an excellent source of instruction and inspiration for all aspiring watercolorists.About the Author:
