This is a post that I have been meaning to write for ages. With Christmas coming up, I thought it might be nice to share with you my favourite watercolour book and, following a quick check on Amazon, I see that it is still available in hardcover (in the uk). So if you have space on your Christmas list, I hope that you won't be disappointed with this gem of a book.
William Lawrence (Skip), in my opinion, is a master in watercolour. He has changed his style in recent years to work of a more abstract quality but it is wonderful that he as written a book to share his art journey with watercolour.
He is particularly good at explaining how he captures light in his work though the use of tone. He is also very keen on exploring shapes and linking shapes within his work, it is all very inspirational.
I do have other favourites which I will share soon. In recent times it's fantastic that we have online access learning resources but don't forget books too, as there are some truly brilliant ones around!
If you have any books that you'd like to share in comments below, I'd love to hear your favourites:
