Books and publications

I love to write, so in addition to painting and teaching, I have also written three books and write articles on all aspects of watercolour technique for magazines in the UK. I am currently writing a fourth book which will be published in July 2022.

Painting Watercolours on Canvas

Liz’s first book is an booksintroduction to the technique of painting watercolour on canvas. Now watercolourists don’t have to hide their paintings under a mount and glass. Published by The Crowood Press the book is available direct from the publisher, bookshops and Amazon.

 

Painting Animals in Watercolour

Liz’s second book was published booksin November 2020. In it she takes you from the foundation techniques, through to more experimental approaches. It is illustrated throughout with her joyful celebrations of the animal kingdom. The Painting Animals in Watercolour course on this site, brings these techniques to life for you. It is available from the publisher, bookshops and online.

Line and Wash Painting

Line and wash is an exciting combination. This practical book shows you how to exploit the strength of ink with the transparency of watercolour to produce powerful and dynamic paintings. With over 170 illustrations, it covers a wide range of styles and subjects. Published by The Crowood Press the book is available direct from the publisher, bookshops and Amazon.

Painting Birds in Watercolour

Published in July 2022, this is my fourth book and it celebrates the love of things with wings. It is deeply practical helping the artist understand how to capture the character of the bird rather than getting caught up in detail. It costs £12.99 and is available from The Crowood Press or from your usual bookshop or online retailer. Very kindly Crowood is offering a 20% discount if you use BIRDS20 at checkout.
