Artist Ann Blockley is renowned for her innovative approach to traditional

subjects. Following the huge success of her previous book, Experimental

Flowers in Watercolour, she now explores ways to interpret landscape. Packed

with stunning examples of her colourful, expressive work, this book encourages

you to experiment with the same techniques in your own watercolour painting

to develop a personal style.

Techniques covered include combining water-based paint and ink with other

media such as gesso and collage to create dramatic effects; manipulating paint

with materials such as plastic wrap (clingfilm); tearing, layering and

reassembling paintings into watercolour collages; and developing textures and

marks made using fabrics and other found objects. Throughout the book Ann

offers her personal commentary on how her paintings were created, giving us a

unique insight into the mind of the artist.

Both practical and inspirational, this glorious book is the ideal companion for

watercolour painters who want to take their work a step further.
