English artists have made a unique contribution to the art of watercolor painting. In no other Western country has this very attractive medium been used so consistently, or for works of such stature, as in England between 1750 and the present day. In this general survey of the whole period, Graham Reynolds, formerly Keeper of Paintings and of Prints and Drawings at the Victoria & Albert Museum, discusses the paintings of over 100 artists including the well-known watercolorists such as Cozens, Girtin, Cotman and De Wint, as well as artists who are equally known for their work in other media - Gainsborough, Turner, Constable, Sargent, Henry Moore. The 140 illustrations, 64 in color, show the work of these and lesser-known artists and reveal the versatility of this medium, so the reader will be introduced to its use for illustrative caricature and portraiture as well as to the finest examples of traditional landscape watercolors.

A brand-new series aimed at helping novice painters hone their skills in thirty-minute periods. Ready to Paint in 30 Minutes: Flowers guides the reader through crucial watercolor techniques for representing flowers, such as layering, blending, negative painting, and capturing the unique shapes and markings of flowers. The studies of these skills should only take half an hour each, so can be fit into a busy day. Each of the 34 30-minute lesson builds up skills that will later come in useful when creating three beautiful, full paintings depicting flowers in different contexts--in a landscape, in a vase, or on a trellis. However, the projects themselves also form unique, standalone paintings in a 6 x 4 sketchpad format, of which the artist can be proud as they build up their skillset in watercolor. The variety of flowers and details to paint is just as great: from poppies to pansies, seed heads to stamens. All the artist needs is basic equipment and a thirty-minute time slot in which to create a miniature masterpiece.
