Landscapes in Watercolour comprises ten tutorials for the absolute beginner to achieve stunning results. The diverse selection of landscapes range from a midwinter farm and a sunny woodland to a coastal waterfront and boats in an estuary. Each watercolour is broken down into four or five stages, showing how to build up a painting from the background colour and add the finishing details. The reader will learn how to simplify the scene in front of them, allowing them to recreate the essence of the landscape for the viewer without slaving over an easel for hours. Interspersed with the tutorials are special masterclasses covering trees, skies and reflections. There is also a section on choosing tools and materials, and introductory topics on colour theory, composition and perspective, and the essential basic drawing and painting techniques. AUTHOR: Lois Davidson is a watercolour artist from the South-East of England, with over 40 years of experience. She has been painting professionally since 2020, and was shortlisted for the Jackson’s Painting Prize in 2021. Her creative interests are focused primarily around her local coastal landscapes, from which she draws constant inspiration. She now runs a successful YouTube art channel alongside her daughter, demonstrating traditional and experimental watercolour techniques, with a focus on loose landscape painting. Her art is her way of connecting with overlooked areas within the landscape through the medium of ink and watercolour. Alongside her painting tutorials, Lois also runs a popular art community online, offering guidance and more in-depth learning opportunities. She has exhibited her work locally, and her paintings have sold around the globe.
