- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
Painting with watercolors gives you endless opportunities to create the world you want. You choose whether to let the sun blaze or the rain pour, to move a maple tree here or make the trail wind over there, to subdue a hillside with quiet greens or make a forest glow with dazzling golds and reds. It's not only a matter of what to paint, but how to go about painting it.
This book examines, one at a time, the three major elements of landscape painting: water, sky and land. You will be encouraged to try numerous ways of painting each one. Then you can choose the methods that best express how the outdoors speaks to you.
Let this reliable collection of tips, techniques, ideas and lessons be your companion on a sure path to creative fulfillment and better watercolor landscapes.

Clear and readily accessible lessons on all aspects of painting landscapes with watercolor. Filled with easily understood tips for beginning artists regardless of medium. Excellent companion to Mackenzie's first Watercolorist's Essential Notebook, although there is some overlap. Very useful chart for assisting the new watercolorist in choosing the best pigments (paints) from many of the reputable manufacturers world-wide. If you can only buy one watercolor book, this is it.
This is a great book on how to do watercolors. It includes instructions, samples, and techniques to try. My watercolor teacher recommended it and I recommend it too.
