Take Three Colours: Watercolour Landscapes will show you how to paint convincing watercolour landscapes in just three colours, with three brushes, a plastic palette and a watercolour pad.
The nine realistic watercolour scenes in this book require only three affordable watercolour paints: light red, cadmium yellow and ultramarine blue, and only the no. 10, no. 4 and no.2 brushes. There is no colour theory or long-winded mixing information to put off the first-time painter, but a practical absolute beginner's course that shows the three colours in action.
Start with a simple sky and progress through a basic scene with a reflected sunset, to landscapes that include simple buildings and even a figure. Clear advice and step-by-step photographs show how to add a simple figure to a scene and how to trace and transfer the basic drawings from the finished paintings, which are shown full size in the book for this purpose.
