Ideas and inspiration using watercolour with mixed media by Carole Robson

A stimulating mix of colour and watercolour technique for all skill levels, this guide helps the artist develop a free and flowing style to their art.

Strongly influenced by the changing landscape, Carole Robson’s artwork is packed with colour, atmosphere, texture and light. An experienced teacher and artist, Carole explores how to build from basic techniques to producing wonderful expressive and semi-abstract landscapes. Combining watercolour with other watersoluble media and collage material, the three detailed step-by-step projects demonstrate perfectly Carole’s expertise and innovative methods. They take you from materials and tools needed through to using masking fluid, salt, spattering techniques, modelling paste, cellophane and much more.
