Popular artist and author Grahame Booth shows you how to paint nine wonderful snow scenes, using just three brushes and three colours


Beautiful snow scenes make wonderful subjects for watercolour artists, yet they are often thought by beginners to be too difficult to paint. Popular artist and author Grahame Booth shows you how, using just three brushes, three colours and nine fantastic projects.


Any colour can be mixed from just blue, red and yellow, and in this easy-to-follow book, Grahame shows you how to mix all the colours you need to paint stunning snow scenes. Starting with a basic tool kit of three brushes, a mixing palette, watercolour paper and of course three tubes of paint, Grahame guides you step-by-step through nine projects, starting with a simple scene and progressing on to more complex ones.


Even if you have never picked up a paintbrush, you will be amazed at what you will achieve by the end of this book. And along the way you will have learnt all the skills you need to start painting wonderful snow scenes of your own.
