Tips and hints on watercolour, drawing, and sketching

I am happy to share my experience of painting with other artists of all abilities. Yes of course I have to make a charge for tuition, demonstrations etc but I also believe that not all knowledge should need to be paid for. So, I have put together some watercolour and sketching articles which I hope you will find useful. They are available here, free, just download the PDFs and print them if you wish. I should say that these articles are free for your own personal use only, I retain the copyright of them and they must not be sold to anyone, or reproduced, without my express permission.
