This book is a very encouraging and personal account by artist, Jeremy Ford, of how to paint watercolours. It’s great for beginners and provides tips for the seasoned watercolorist. It covers materials, basic techniques and colour theory. It then uses an example painting to demonstrate the colours and techniques explained on the previous pages. Ford then takes the reader through three demonstrations with a step by step guide taking you through a clear ‘process’ of how to use the techniques previously explained to make three beautiful paintings. This makes it very easy to follow. Each demonstration builds on the one before and I found it best working through each of the demonstrations in order. You use techniques you learned previously and build on these as you go along. By the end of the book you will have completed three very accomplished watercolour paintings, two landscapes and a life painting of a bouquet of flowers which you can be very proud of. Each painting project to not at all overwhelming being fairly swift to complete and in fact very enjoyable indeed! It is beautifully illustrated throughout and includes lots of pictures to help provide further guidance on specific techniques and advice from the artist.
