An inspirational and practical art manual, packed with step-by-step projects. Artist Ann Blockley is renowned for her innovative approach to watercolour painting. Her highly anticipated new book provides a series of workshops demonstrating how to push the boundaries of watercolour, using key techniques to develop your own work and take your paintings to the next level. Ann's easy-to-follow, step-by-step projects demonstrate how some of her most dramatic paintings are created. She describes in detail some of the key techniques used and how you can experiment with alternative methods to create your own interpretations. Finally, her beautiful and inspirational artworks demonstrate how different interpretations of a subject might take an unexpected or unusual direction, and how to make the most of these opportunities. The book moves, with progressively challenging projects, from loose wildflower meadows, textured woodland and rustic rambling walls to atmospheric or semi-abstract landscape corners, all rendered in Ann’s adventurous signature style. Loose, expressive mark-making and unusual techniques include combining water-based paint and ink with granulation medium for dramatic texture, drawing with twigs, using gesso and collage to create unique effects; manipulating paint with materials such as plastic wrap (clingfilm); developing printed marks made using found materials. Following the huge demand for more practical guidance in experimental painting, the book provides plenty of techniques and instruction. Ann’s personal commentary also gives a unique insight into the mind of the artist – ways of looking at your subject, how to explore and experiment – to unlock the potential of your watercolour painting.

The Watercolours And Drawings Of Thomas Bewick And His Workshop Apprentices

Thomas Bewick (1753-1828) has long been considered the finest of English wood engravers. No one has ever better expressed the feeling of the English landscape and its homely incident than Bewick in his meticulously rendered scenes of countryside and wildlife. His innovations transformed the medium of engraving for a hundred years, and first distinguished the technique as an art. John James Audubon pronounced him the greatest delineator of nature of his time.This natural focus on Bewick the engraver has overshadowed his accomplishments as a watercolourist and draftsman of major rank. Over a thousand of his drawings and watercolours survive, but until the publication of these volumes only a handful have ever appeared in print before, and none in modern times. They are reproduced here in accordance with the most exacting standards.The first volume presents an illustrated biographical account of Bewick and explains his working methods in metal engraving and in the transfer of drawings to the wood block. It also discusses the organization of his workshop and ascribes to the hands of apprentices through stylistic exegesis a number of works previously believed to be Bewick's own. A catalog of 200 monochrome subjects drawn from the "Quadrupeds, British Birds, Fables of Aesop" and the unpublished "Fishes" is followed by appendices recording collections now holding Bewick's drawings.The second volume contains the watercolours and drawings alongside the engravings for which they were prepared, in addition to major watercolours for which there are no extant engravings. Over 200 color subjects are presented in this volume, together with a further 192 drawings and engravings.A production note: the slipcases containing the two volumes were handmade, and the paper, Bewick Cartridge, was especially made for these books. They were designed by Peter Guy and printed by the Westerham Press in England. The MIT Press is offering a limited edition of 500 sets to American readers and collectors.Iain Bain is publisher at the Tate Gallery, London, and an authority on the history of book production and hand presses as well as on the work of Thomas Bewick. He personally oversaw the production of these volumes.
