10 Pen and Wash: Learn how to create beautiful paintings [Step-by-step Leisure Arts No. 22]
Jennings, Robert Search Press London 2007 0855329661 / 9780855329662 Soft cover New Book 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall 
New paperback. RRP. £6.99. The methods of merging soft luminous washes with the crisp, definite markings of penwork, are made easy with this book. Each stage of the painting process is illustrated using step-by-step photographs and beautiful finished paintings. Merging and blending washes of colour with fluid, definite linework enhances and strengthens a watercolour painting - whether you paint within the outline, or just suggest form in a rugged landscape. Bob Jennings illustrates the techniques with energy and enthusiasm - showing how to create a scene, define detail and add texture. Practical step-by-step demonstrations illustrate how to build up a painting, and inspirational paintings show how the techniques can be adapted to create new pictures. 48pp. 304206
