John Hoar is the master of fast flowing washes and impressionistic watercolour landscapes. In this DVD he travels from his home in North Devon to the beautiful Fenland City of Ely in Cambridgeshire with its picturesque riverside, winding backstreets and stunning cathedral to paint four full demonstrations. Using a limited palette John creates exciting paintings that crackle with energy – and painted in his own inimitable style. He reveals how to distil an often complex scene into a simplified watercolour masterpiece.

Take up the challenge, especially if you are a fiddler and try this unhurried, focused, get it on the paper method of working; time limit yourself as John Hoar does. Look hard at his simplified pallet and clean brush work. You will learn how to be brave. Hugh Spink (Halesworth, United Kingdom) on 1 Dec 2013
