About Joe Cartwright
Joe Cartwright has been painting with watercolors for over twenty years.
fourteen years ago he left a 30 year career in marketing to follow his passion of watercolor painting. For most of this time he has taught watercolor, both in classes and workshops, and gets a special thrill at seeing his students progress in this magical medium.
It was his experience with his students, learning to answer their many and varied questions in as simple a way as possible that caused him to produce his book "Mastering Watercolors - a practical guide."

Books By Joe Cartwright
This book is a culmination of many years of teaching. Through it, I set out to clear up widespread misconceptions about painting with watercolors. These common confusions hold watercolor artists back from achieving their full potential.
Full of practical advice and techniques, my aim is to simplify watercolor painting to assist you in your personal watercolor adventure. Enjoy the journey!
Here you’ll find twelve new step-by-step paintings with reference photos and plenty of images to guide you through each piece. I’ve also included a section on watercolor basics and materials (11 pages) similar to what was in my first book for people who have not read it. An additional chapter covers what to consider when working from photographs.
An ideal follow-on from “Mastering Watercolors – a practical guide,” this book is especially suited to people who can’t attend regular classes with a professional tutor.
Watercolor is wonderful and challenging medium which, like most creative pursuits, develops with regular practice.
