By Diana Craig and Hazel Harrison

I was commissioned by Quarto Books to produce an instructive step-by-step guide to the watercolour technique of GLAZING for The New Encyclopedia of Watercolor Techniques: A Step-by-step Visual Directory, with an Inspirational Gallery of Finished Works. It was published in the US in October 2010 by Running Press.

Book Description:

"The technique of watercolour painting—applying pigment mixed with water to a surface—has a long and noble tradition. It was known in China as long ago as the third century, and has been practiced in the rest of the world for at least 300 years.
This vivid and informative book brings this technique to the modern-day artist. Filled with a complete range of water-based media, it presents more than 30 techniques—explained with easy-to-follow instructions and step-by-step photography to guide and inspire.
The Encyclopaedia of Watercolour Techniques will provide you with everything you'll need to master the art of watercolour."
