Let Charles Evans help you rescue your watercolor paintings from common problems and mistakes with proven solutions.
Watercolor is a difficult medium to master, and even experienced artists are prone to making mistakes.
Over the years he has spent working as a professional artist and demonstrator, Charles has built up a huge bank of expert advice, tricks, tips and techniques for fixing common problems, correcting mistakes, and learning how to avoid them in the first place.
These problems include:
how to remove 'cauliflowers', the importance of placing your water container correctly to avoid spillages
what to do if one color is bleeding into another
how to make distant hills look - well - distant, and
why you keep mixing muddy color.
Each 'problem' will begin with a question asked by one of the author's students, such as How do I stop my trees looking like lollipops?, followed by Charles' solution, and a short demonstration of how to prevent the problem occurring next time you paint.
About the Author
Charles Evans is one of the UK's leading painters, well-known from his long-running TV series and for his art classes, which are held all over the UK. After a conventional school education Charles entered and spent many years in the catering trade, eventually taking a break to study at Lincoln College of Art. He then joined the Royal Air Force. Following several years in the military, Charles resumed his civilian life in catering, owning bistros and contract catering companies, before turning back to art around thirty years ago. Charles made over two hundred television programmes on art for the Tyne Tees television company, then for the Discovery Channel.
Charles has written several books for Search Press, and now also represents Daler-Rowney as their main demonstrator. His exuberant and informal personality is reflected in his paintings, which have a lightness and simplicity that many artists aspire to.
