Overview


How to paint your world in watercolorÂ…and have fun doing it!

The day Sterling Edwards watched an artist paint an entire sky with three deft brushstrokes was the day he committed to trading his tiny oil brushes and photorealistic style in favor of big, bold strokes of watercolor. In the years since, he's developed not only a wonderfully fresh, luminous painting style, but also an approach that takes the intimidation out of this beautiful but often-mystifying medium. In this book, he shares both.

  • Initial chapters lay the foundation for successful paintings, from choosing the right brushes to achieving vibrant colors, interesting textures and strong compositions.
  • Step-by-step demonstrations illustrate techniques for painting rocks, skies, trees, foliage, buildings, water and other landscape elements.
  • An easy-to-follow, four-step painting process makes for easier starts and stronger finishes, complete with rich darks and sparkling highlights.
  • Eight complete painting projects cover a range of breathtaking scenes and seasons.

Whether you're dipping into the medium for the first time or you're a watercolor devotee on a quest for clearer color and more personal statements, this book will help you make the most of the time you spend with brush in hand.

    Excellent book for novices!

    As a beginning watercolorist I couldn't have picked a better book to learn by. His descriptions and how-tos make it easy for even dummies like me to understand! Recommended

    Highly recommended!

    I took a workshop from Sterling Edwards last week. The sweet man was so generous in teaching techniques. A lot of what he taught is in this wonderful book. This book allows me review the techniques so I can practice the art of luminous watercolor.
