Synopses & Reviews
Taking beginning artists and armchair travelers across a series of stunning landscapes—from the rocky, ancient landscape and blue waterways of the Mediterranean, to the classic Georgian doorways of pub-lined Dublin streets, and finally to the rustic, romantic barns of the American countryside—this step-by-step watercolor tutorial includes 14 carefully selected, evocative scenes. With each project accompanied by the jargon-free guidance of Terry Harrison and Geoff Kersey, beginning artists will enjoy the easy-to-use tracing papers that allow them to skip the initial challenges of drawing each scene and immediately indulge in their watercolor painting passions.
"The Trace & Paint series allows you to get stuck in with your painting straight away. There are no decisions to make about what to paint, or time spent on trying to get the drawing right before you can add colour." —Leisure Painter (January 2013)
