About this book

The perfect guide for nature lovers who want to draw and paint with watercolours, Drawing and Painting the Seashore begins with a brief history of seaside scenes in art, a guide to the materials required and the basics of drawing. This is followed by step-by-step, illustrated instructions on how to draw plants, seashells, marine birds, fish, and a range of seaside landscapes, from sand dunes to shingles. The author explains how to paint tricky elements such as reflections on the water or the mother-of-pearl in a seashell with clear, labelled diagrams. Beautifully illustrated, Drawing and Painting the Seashore will delight any artist who loves the seaside.
