Book Description by Andrew Gemmill
Description of my book
“Watercolour sketching with Andrew Gemmill” is intended to provide a straightforward outline of my way of painting in watercolour. Most artists have more in common than they may suppose, certainly in terms of technique, but all the same everyone’s work is unique and different. Some well wishers and students have been the inspiration for me to write this book, although their contention that there is some originality in my work is perhaps more than I would claim. It has turned out to be a rather informative book for anyone who loves watercolour and could be of particular interest to those who would like to try their hand at this wonderful and charming medium.
I take a brief look at the place of watercolour in the history of art and refer to some of the greatest exponents of watercolour painting who have been my inspiration. I include some paintings showing the stages or layers of how they were done. I examine as simply as possible the complex and challenging world of colour and colour mixing, the basic materials needed and the procedures I have adopted to find my own way of working.
The second section is a gallery of paintings comprising a selection of those I have done over the years and covers a wide range of subjects, mostly places I have been to. Most have been sold or have disappeared from view, but there are still some that are available.
"Watercolour Sketching with Andrew Gemmill" - $50.
Paintings included in the Book - Framed from $250
Mounted Unframed Paintings from $150
