Arnold Lowrey is a popular and experienced author and artist, well-known on both sides of the Atlantic. In this new edition of his popular book 'Starting to Paint' (Search Press, 2003) he offers an inspiring and creative introduction to watercolours, and in clear, simple-to-understand terms he explores the materials and techniques you will need to start painting. Using a vibrant and colourful palette, he clearly illustrates all the techniques from laying initial washes and capturing atmosphere to adding interest and detail - and includes a series of step-by-step demonstrations to build up skills. Before you realise it you will be painting your own beautiful paintings - with this fresh, innovative introduction to watercolours.
Arnold Lowrey has been painting in a variety of media for over twenty-five years. His motivation has been the use of light in painting, but he now experiments more with colour and texture. His seascapes are especially vibrant and full of movement. Arnold also likes painting still life, landscapes, portraits and abstracts. He exhibits his paintings in Wales and London. Arnold holds regular weekend workshops and weekly painting courses, residential watercolour courses and demonstrations for Art Societies. He is also a painting demonstrator for several art material suppliers. www.lowrey.co.uk
