This practical and inspirational guide to experimental painting in watercolour and other water-based media provides a uniquely styled developmental workshop in a series of adaptable projects. Ann demonstrates how to use watercolour in loose and expressive ways, using key techniques to develop your own creativity and take your paintings further.

Ann’s step-by-step projects demonstrate in detail how to develop paintings and experiment with alternative methods to create your own interpretations. Her beautiful and inspirational artworks  also demonstrate how different versions of a subject might take an unexpected direction, and how to make the most of these exciting opportunities.

The book moves, with progressively challenging practical projects, from loose wildflower meadows, textured woodland and rustic rambling walls to atmospheric or semi-abstract landscape corners. Loose, expressive mark-making and unusual techniques include combining water-based paint and ink with granulation medium for dramatic texture, drawing with twigs, using gesso and collage to create unique effects; manipulating paint with materials such as plastic wrap (clingfilm); developing printed marks made using found materials.

Ann’s personal commentary gives a unique insight into the mind of the artist – ways of looking at and interpreting your subject, how to explore and experiment – to unlock the unique potential of your own watercolour painting.
