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.
