Overview

A bold, breakthrough approach to watercolor shows readers how to combine spontaneity and control to produce lively, luminescent paintings.

According to this award-winning artist, when it comes to painting in watercolor, "there's no greater freedom than play". Her unstructured method begins with action-filled exercises that demonstrate how to play with paint, following no rules. But freedom also entails planning, and subsequent step-by-step projects show how to turn loose washes into light-filled watercolors with textural effects achieved by spraying, sprinkling, pouring, squirting, or stamping paint.
