Overview

“Bold” isn’t a word generally associated with watercolor, but that’s because most artists don’t know the secrets of using them to create bright, vibrant works. Internationally renowned painter and instructor Annette Kane reveals her three secrets for intensifying this popular medium: special methods of mixing colors; brushstrokes that maximize the power of a composition; and fresh ways of combining other elements like ink, acrylic, and gouache. She covers each move toward boldness with start-to-finish demonstrations that lead to stunning finished paintings in a variety of forms—including still life, sun and shadow studies, window and doorway scenes, landscapes, and water features.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
How does an artist capture the heat, the earthiness, and the unique light of Italy's Amalfi coast and the mountain towns of Greece? Or the shadow and colors of French gardens? Kane, one of the United Kingdom's many celebrated watercolorists, has had successful solo exhibitions in New York and Amsterdam. Here, she shows us her three-pronged method of creating bright, vibrant works-special methods of mixing colors, brush strokes that maximize the power of composition, and fresh ways of combining other elements like ink, acrylic, and gouache. James Toogood's Incredible Light & Texture in Watercolor is fine for realistic details of light; Kane's book is highly recommended for a more bold and vibrant approach.
