Rivers can be enchanting or exciting, but are always absorbing. They provide a myriad of painting opportunities and challenges for the artist. Focusing on watercolour - one of the most direct of mediums - this practical book explains how to paint a river and capture its life, light, movement, colour and interest. With over 200 colour images, Rob Dudley shares his methods, techniques and ideas to make this beautiful book a must-have for all landscape and en plein-air artists.

  • Explains each stage of a painting; inspiration and focus, sketching and information gathering, planning and painting
  • Advises on how to paint water so that it captures the colour, shape and tone of light and reflections
  • Looks at the various moods and characters of rivers - from the early streams and cascades through to strong, busy waterways and finally to the tidal estuary, where the river meets the sea
  • Instructs on how to bring a painting to life by including the features of a river - the boats, wildlife, people and bridges
  • Finished paintings, examples and step-by-step sequences are used throughout to support the detailed instruction
