Step-by-step photographs of easy techniques and great demonstrations offer an exciting course for anyone wanting to learn how to paint all the elements in the landscape, from mountain views and rustic scenes to sea-lashed rocks and sun-dappled woodlands.
In this guide, Terry Harrison, the master of simple methods, tricks, and tips, illustrates the versatility of watercolor, offering fun-filled challenges with this beautiful medium. First he teaches the basics, and then he explores special effects like mist on a distant mountain top or reflections in a running stream. The demonstrations that follow guide readers through all the stages of building up a sequence of stunning landscape paintings.
Beginners love Harrison because his teaching methods bring instant success — and more experienced artists appreciate the many different ideas and innovative techniques he shares.
Terry Harrison became interested in art early on, attending art school at the age of 16. His studies led to a career in graphics, and then illustration, where he developed his painting style and perfected his techniques. When demand grew for his paintings, he quickly gave up his "day job" to paint full time. Harrison keeps a full schedule of exhibitions, private commissions, demonstrations, and painting holidays, and his fine art prints are sold in shops and galleries everywhere, including his own gallery. He is an energetic and prolific painter, and his regular re-bookings for demonstrations reflect an enthusiastic response to his educational and entertaining style.
