New videos: how to paint with Watercolour

Have you ever tried painting with watercolour? Have you been put off because you feel like you have to be really exact and perfect? We worked with students from Archbiship Tenison School in London to ask artists and illustrators about their techniques for using watercolours, and made a series of films to show that using watercolour can mean loads of different outcomes – not just the super-precise style that you might be familiar with!
