Jeremy's major new book, commissioned by Winsor & Newton entitled
"How to Paint Water Colour" was published by Search Press in Autumn 2009.
This is proving hugely successful and is an ideal book for the beginner, but also challenging enough for the more experienced painter.
There is also a best-selling DVD available from the S.A.A. which features some of the paintings in his book.
