For serious watercolourists seeking a vibrant expressive quality in their work. Watercolour Painting is designed to promote a more thoughtful, fresh and original approach to watercolour. A medum known for its beguiling ironies, watercolour takes great skill to control, yet must appear to be free of control. Throughout the book, notable artist and teacher Tom Hoffmann stressed that students of watercolour must understand that realising the potential of watercolour involves taking chances and informed risks. The key to success lies in knowing what will happen when brush touches paper.
