A practical, stimulating and superbly illustrated book for intermediate watercolourists who are looking for greater challenges in their work and who are prepared to experiment with this popular medium.

Shirley Trevena’s watercolours are visually inspiring, vibrant with colour and strong in composition. This book shows what stunning results she achieves and how she does it by taking risks with watercolour. Although watercolour can be a difficult medium to handle, Shirley maintains that you get the best results if you have no sense of fear and just let yourself enjoy watercolour’s fascinating versatility.

Taking you through her paintings from the first concept to the finished watercolour, Shirley explains and illustrates her prize-winning techniques for producing luminous and colourful watercolours. She covers a wide range of topics, encouraging the reader to experiment with vibrant colour, dynamic composition, tone, and bold textures and patterns to produce exciting still life, landscape and flower paintings. She also explains what to do if things go wrong, and how to develop your paintings successfully and move on in your work.
