A wonderfully fresh, direct and versatile medium, watercolour is ideal for capturing the transient effects of light. The compact and lightweight material is the perfect medium for plein-air painting. David Curtis works in all weather conditions, observing and capturing changing conditions and effects. He provides helpful instruction on interpreting light effects, with strong guidance on choosing materials, exploring techniques, composition, tone and colour. This is complemented by a wealth of sketches, finished works and step-by-step demonstration paintings to inspire further ideas.
