Getting Schooled, Part 2

Another book that I’ve picked up for watercolour exercises is “The Handbook of Watercolour Landscapes: Tips & Techniques” by Bolton, Kersey, Dowden and Whittle. Again, this is another book that uses the step-by-step method to build paintings. Unlike using acrylics, you need to read a few steps ahead because working quickly on wet paper is essential.

One cold Friday afternoon, Deb Miles and I took on one of the landscape challenges in the book. We learned a lot from this challenge – how to build wet-on-wet skies, that masking tape is no substitute for masking fluid, and that there is a point when the paper is no longer your friend!
