Book Review: Compendium of Watercolour Techniques: 200 Tips, Techniques and Trade Secrets

Compendium of Watercolour Techniques: 200 Tips, Techniques and Trade Secrets - 01


This is a wonderful watercolour techniques book by Robin Berry.

It's packed with lots of insightful and concise tips. It's not just on watercolour tips but also on general drawing principles such as composition, using values, etc. One chapter features tips on dealing with different subjects, like landscape, water, flowers, people, buildings, animals, etc.

9 step-by-step demonstrations are included. They particularly good because they show and explain the techniques as they are used. The instructions are clear and they detail each painting process. There are beautiful paintings as examples throughout, from Robin Berry herself and other invited artists.

The last chapter covers techniques used to create effects, like spraying, glazing, removing colours. It's a short chapter but the examples are great.

It's an insightful and inspiring compendium suitable for beginners. Advanced artists might enjoy the examples and ideas suggested.
