Win a copy of Boost Your Watercolour Confidence

Win a copy of Boost Your Watercolours

My son has been enjoying his online art classes for a year now. He misses the face to face contact but I’m glad he has been able top carry on with something he enjoys so much. I am always on the lookout for books to help him improve his skills so was excited to see Boost Your Watercolour Confidence: Over 60 exercises to build skills and ignite creativity by Katie Putt, recently published by Search Press.

Boost Your Watercolour Confidence

With Boost Your Watercolour Confidence you can learn to use watercolours with confidence with this gorgeous and easy-to-use book of exercises and templates.

Boost Your Watercolour Confidence

When using watercolour, it is important to allow your painting to simply unfold across the pages of your sketchbooks and to learn from your successes as well as your mistakes. This wonderful book will show you how, through 68 challenges ranging from basic to more advanced techniques that you can work through in your own time.

To help you on your way, 24 sheets of high-quality watercolour paper with printed outlines are included, corresponding to the projects in the book.
