This original book is no less than a course in seeing, observation and watercolour technique that's been condensed into fifty basic lessons.

Wil's suggestion of starting by painting what you see around you isn't new, but his take on it brings a fresh approach that will have you looking anew at your environment.

The book is divided into five main sections that cover still lifes, landscapes, cityscapes, animals and people. The small paintings of the title are short demonstrations that work on different aspects of each subject and introduce techniques such as washes, masking, proportion, brushwork and mixed media.

Although watercolour is Wil's medium, he combines it with pen & wash and also some monochrome work. His style is pleasantly loose and informal and he'll also explain how to use a sketchbook to take quick notes in the field.

Whether you're a beginner or a more experienced painter, Wil's uncomplicated approach and emphasis on simplification have much to offer.
