Arnold Lowrey has been painting in a variety of media for over twenty-five years. His motivation has been the use of light in painting, but he now experiments more with colour and texture. His seascapes are especially vibrant and full of movement. Arnold also likes painting still life, landscapes, portraits and abstracts. He exhibits his paintings in Wales and London.Arnold holds regular weekend workshops and weekly painting courses, residential watercolour courses and demonstrations for art societies. He is also a painting demonstrator for several art material suppliers.


The Ready to Paint series are a really useful addition for artist wishing to practice painting techniques without worrying about the drawing first. Each book carries several drawings ready for tracing and one this step is done the artist can follow Arnolds' easy to understand instructions to complete a beautiful artwork. Arnold gives an overview of all the materials needed for each project including the colours he uses. He includes several useful tips to help the artist that may be overlooked. The five projects included in the book use a variety of different techniques that once practised will be useful for future artworks. They are very easy to follow as Arnold clearly explains and illustrates each step. Each one focusses on a particular element of watercolour painting so having completed the book the student will have a god grounding in useful watercolour techniques. A super book for any artist interested in painting watercolour Arnold Lowrey has a bold and direct style of painting and a feeling for light and colour.
