  12. DISCONTINUED & SOLD OUT - From Sketch to Watercolour Painting with Wendy Jelbert Book

    DISCONTINUED & SOLD OUT - From Sketch to Watercolour Painting with Wendy Jelbert Book

    £9.99

    A sketchbook is your personal record of the world around you as you see and respond to it. There's no special format and it can take any form you want, from a quick pencil note to a full record of the colours, shapes and maybe even people that were there at the time.

    Beginners, however, often find themselves bogged down in the technical, worrying about what they should be doing rather than responding spontaneously to the moment.

    Wendy is an experienced and enthusiastic user of sketchbooks and this new book is no less than a manual in how to use yours in the way you want – to record the moment and the atmosphere of a scene in a way that you can use later to work up a finished painting.

    "There are no hard and fast rules", says Wendy, but there are guidelines and this is an account of her own journey that will help you find your own path to success. She demonstrates a wide variety of scenes and shows how they can be recorded quickly but accurately and expanded later in the studio.

    Full of hints, tips, exercises and demonstrations, this thoroughly practical guide covers pen, pencil, watercolour and line & wash and will have you feeling confident in no time. Learn More
