Overview


Beginners are introduced both to cake and tube water-based pigments and are instructed on methods of applying and controlling their colors as they paint on different grades of wet and dry paper. Following a number of practical still life and landscape projects, they are invited to analyze three watercolor masterpieces by the great English landscape artist John Constable. The books also make fine instruction manuals for teachers in beginning art classes. Each book opens with descriptions and illustrations of materials the students will require, including pigments, a variety of brushes, and additional equipment. Sections that follow give basic instruction on different methods of applying pigments to paper or canvas to produce different effects and textures for different purposes. Several projects are then presented in order of increasing difficulty, with special attention first to still lifes, and then to landscapes. The concluding page of each book describes a master artist who excelled in the medium being taught, and shows representative illustrations of several of his masterpieces. Volumes in this series are printed in full color throughout and are filled with photos and illustrations on every page.
