Book Description

'Learning to paint successfully takes time and practice and Search Press is to be commended for finding yet another imaginative and fun way of inspiring its readers to pick up their brushes and put colour on paper.' Praise from Ingrid Lyon, Editor of Leisure Painter Magazine

A poster book, an art pad and a step-by-step painting book all rolled into one! 5 beautiful posters to pull out and frame, along with the watercolour outline and stage-by-stage instructions you need to paint each artwork for yourself.

Fill your home with original, professional art - and learn how to paint at the same time. This innovative new series is a poster book, an art pad and a step-by-step painting book all rolled into one!

Each of the five A3 posters are ready to pull out, frame and display. In addition, you can enjoy the calming pursuit of painting each of the pictures yourself using the pre-printed outlines - so no drawing required.

The large landscape format of the book allows each stage of painting to be clearly and comprehensively explained with an innovative annotation approach. Simply pull out the simple, stage-by-stage tutorial pages and pin them to your easel, then paint directly onto the watercolour outlines for fantastic results.

In this title, learn how to paint five of the nation's favourite flowers in the style of the finest watercolour artists of this day. Choose from a vibrant bouquet of sunflowers, a field of poppies, a vase of tulips, a garden of roses or a bed of irises.

Art Book Review

An A3 book is not easy to manage so, instead of the portfolio styling of the parent series, these are pads where youre clearly intended to pull out not just the sheets of watercolour paper with their pre-printed outlines, but the instruction pages as well. Tape the paper down onto a drawing board, pin the instructions on the wall and it all starts to make sense.

The quality is stunning. Each painting is shown in its complete state and, at this size, any shortcomings in the reproduction are going to be immediately obvious and a massive frustration. Full use has been made of the large page size to lay the instructions out clearly and illustrate them in detail. Everything is really clear and, if youre adopting my suggestion of pinning them on a wall, easy to see.

Theres an elegant simplicity to it thatll make serious art easily accessible to even the raw beginner.
