Overview

This instructive volume guides students toward understanding and reproducing the play of light on water. It uses step-by-step illustrations of works in progress, and also shows dramatic use of water effects by a variety of famous artists, including Winslow Homer, J.M.W. Turner, and many others. Titles in Barron's Painter's Corner art instruction series speak to serious amateur artists, as well as to students enrolled in art classes. Instruction is presented on a level that will suit the needs of intermediate-level students, but many ambitious beginners have also profited from these books. Each title explains the fundamentals of painting and drawing in a given genre or style, and presents sample projects that can guide students toward professional-looking results.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA
Using examples from such artists as Vincent Van Gogh, Henri Matisse, and Paul Cezanne, each volume in this series focuses on painting or drawing in a specific style or genre. Theory flows directly into application so that effects may be understood and then replicated. Concentrating on the difficult task of capturing water in art, Water Effects presents a range of artists who have mastered the techniques, offering both realistic and graphic interpretations of the subject. As with other books in the series, this volume shifts from theory to application, presenting exercises for achieving different effects with a range of techniques and materials. Although directed toward intermediate to advanced artists, this series would be appropriate for more advanced beginners looking to broaden their knowledge and refine technique. Filled with beautiful illustrations and detailed text, this series will inspire any artist. (The Painter's Corner).
