Bring a Fantasy World of Enchanting Beings to Life!

Angels, faeries and mermaids have engaged the imaginations and enchanted the brushes of artists for centuries. Now you can evoke the spirit of these mythical creatures and create fantastic works of ethereal art in watercolor. Step by inspired step, Stephanie Pui-Mun Law shows you how to paint the otherworlds' most marvelous creatures and exquisite settings. Twenty step-by-step projects show you how to create fantastic scenes that are elegantly styled, brilliantly colored, and alive with a sense of wonder.

Fabulous Realms! Create strange and lovely backgrounds, such as the meandering oak branches of faery folk, the celestial surrounding of angels, and the seascapes where mermaids dwell.

Delightful Details! From angel wings to mermaid tails, from flowing robes to faery gowns, learn to paint an imaginative variety of features, clothing and other details that ensure one-of-a-kind results.

Mystical Effects! Discover special watercolor techniques for adding magic and mystery to your paintings.

You'll begin by learning about essential materials, including brushes, paints, paper, then will move on to important techniques such as planning and sketching; figure proportions; specific characteristics of angels, faeries and mermaids (including clothing); developing backgrounds; and finishing techniques that add an air of magic.

Her paintings capture the essence of fantasy perfectly. I hadn't done any artwork in a while, but just looking at her art made me want to run to my watercolors right away. I've used watercolors before, but no one ever really taught me how. This book showed me several new tips I'm itching to try out. I drew two fairies already, and it's so fun! I definitely recommend getting this book.
