- Great lessons from a master watercolorist Review by Tim
John Lidzey is a renowned English watercolorist, and this dvd demonstrates clearly why that is so. One of Lidzey’s particular strengths is his atmospheric treatment of house interiors, and this is the major focus here. Later in the program he demonstrates broader scenes on a railway station and in a forest. His gentle instruction is very clear and encouraging, and helps the viewer to achieve vibrancy in their own watercolors through showing how to create areas of light. Lidzey also gives helpful advice about how shadows are produced on different surfaces, and how the artist can create vivid works painted against the light.
