An ideal beginner's guide to painting boats and harbours in watercolour for artists who are short on time. This guide to painting boats and harbours in watercolour is ideal if you want to learn to paint but are short on time. Broken down into 33 quick and easy paintings that take no more than 30 minutes to complete, this basic course will teach you all the skills you need to paint boats, yachts or barges on calm seas or raging waves, including how to depict reflections in water or realistic surf. The 30-minute paintings are all worked at postcard size - ideal for a 6 x 4in (A6) watercolour pad, and tracings are included for those with limited drawing skills. Each small painting is a work of art in its own right, and can be stored in your portfolio for reference later, or framed and hung on the wall to impress your friends. The book is broken down into six chapters that focus, respectively, on portraying skies and water, texture and effects, boats themselves, boat and harbour details, waterside buildings and people and animals; through the 33 projects the reader will also be introduced to some of the techniques and tips that Charles Evans has learned along the way. The final section of the book contains three complete paintings that demonstrate how to combine all the techniques and elements of painting boats and harbours, gleaned from the preceding chapters. These paintings, too, are accompanied by actual-size tracings. There are 33 tracings in all to help you compose your own paintings of boats and harbours, and their details and environs.

The Victorian era produced many famous artists and styles. John Everett Millais and Dante Gabriel Rossetti were part of the famous pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood whose willowy models were often seen in the works of several of the artists. One of the most famous was Elizabeth Siddall, an artist in her own right, who posed for Millais Ophelia, married to Rossetti, and posed for him, Holman Hunt and Walter Deverell. This fascinating book is a must for everyone interested in art and the Victorian era, and in the genres, styles and relationships between art and the events of the day. There are biographies of the artists and models, glimpses of their most famous pieces new insights into the vibrant Victorian art-world - the lives and loves, and the artists dealings with their patrons.Did you know?Rossetti tucked a book of his own poetry into Siddalls hair in her coffin and, later, arranged for her exhumation to reclaim it. After several years, the coffin had preserved her ethereal red hair.
