This is not so much a book about how to paint trees, as how to paint scenes with trees in them, and it's all the better for that.

The book comprises no fewer than 24 different scenes, each with an outline tracing and a double-page spread showing the completed work along with notes on the colours used and how some of the specific details were handled. It's a series of ideas rather than a set of exercises to complete and, as such, more suited to those with some experience of the medium.

Geoff has chosen an excellent variety of subjects from the stark shapes of a winter morning's walk to the dappled shade of a woodland in spring, from the warm afternoon sunshine of a Manhattan park to the chilly afterglow of a midwinter evening.

With Geoff as your guide this excellent book is sure to put a spring in your step and you'll realise that learning to paint is easier than you think.

Críticas:

June 12 Want to paint a picture but not sure of a subject? Or maybe you have recently graduated from the Ready To Paint series and are up for a more challenging project? Either way here is another entry in the What To Paint series that solves the problem. There are twenty-four pictures in here to paint, all depicting trees in various landscapes. Turn to the back and there are the outlines to transfer to watercolor paper with a handy chart at the front showing small thumbnail images so you can decide what type of scene to tackle. Each project is described on two pages, one with a full page colored photograph of the finished work and the other with a list of the paints you need with the colors shown plus instructions. These are not the in-depth captioned photographic stages found in the Ready To Paint series or some other Search Press art books but a brief description of what the artist did to achieve various effects. This is a helpful "halfway house" between the beginners books and going it alone, and at the beginning of the book there are more useful mini tutorials. These include wet into wet, masking fluid, dry brushing and color mixing for this type of subject. There are also instructions on how to transfer the outlines. The paintings themselves are glorious, the sort of scenes you wish you could step right into. Apart from one in Manhattan park the others in are England, mostly in the Derbyshire area, a few in the New Forest and other locations. There are snowy landscapes that would suit a Christmas card, colorful autumn woods, verdant forests in summer and bright springtime scenes. My favorite has to be the beautiful bluebell wood, and these are the sort of restful but cheerful pictures that suit most walls. * Myshelf.com * July 12 Popular watercolourist Geoff Kersey has recently added to Search Press's popular 'What to Paint' series with his Trees, Woodlands & Forests in Watercolour. Following the by now familiar format, Geoff provides information on watercolour techniques, such as wet into wet, dry-brush and using masking fluid specificially in connection with painting trees. He also describes how to mix the colours you are looking for. Twenty-four free outlines can be found in the centre of the book and Geoff shows you how to transfer the image from the tracing to your chosen watercolour paper. Using the colour palette provided, and the description of how the picture was done, you are able to get straight on with painting, without the worry of poor draughtsmanship or indecision over what to paint. Subjects include a woodland stream, winter silhouettes, autumn at Chatsworth and a bluebell wood. * Leisure Painter, The * Summer Catalogue 2014 Packed with 24 different scenes, each project comes supplied with an outline tracing, a double-page spread showing complete works. In the accompanying DVD, Geoff shows you his top tips on how to create beautiful landscape paintings. * SAA *
