Ready to Paint: Venice in Watercolor

Venice is arguably one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and painters have been inspired by its stunning and evocative vistas for hundreds of years. Now you too can create watercolor paintings of this wonderful city by following Joe Dowden's example.

In Ready to Paint: Venice in Watercolor, readers learn how to capture mood, reproduce stunning light effects, and paint realistic skies, water, and architecture, all essential for capturing the essence and beauty of Venice.

Simply transfer the drawing of your choice to watercolor paper and begin. Every color mix and technique is fully explained, and there are numerous tips to help you produce a finished work of art worthy of framing and hanging on the wall.

Five in-depth projects with drawings are included, as well as a sixth bonus drawing. Also included is a useful section on the materials and equipment needed, and instructions on how to transfer the drawing.

Joe Francis Dowden turned professional in 1982 and has since written many successful books published by David & Charles, Sterling, and Search Press. Dowden lives in Worthing, East Sussex. He exhibits his work throughout Great Britain, often selling his entire selection of paintings at his one-man shows.
