Watercolor for the Absolute Beginnerby Mark Willenbrink

Library JournalWatercolors are notoriously uncontrollable, moving and blending in unexpected ways. These two books offer expert training, one for the novice and the other for the serious artist. Unlike other beginners books that promise more than they can deliver (e.g., Frank Halliday's Watercolors in a Weekend: Landscapes), the Willenbrinks' book hits its mark beautifully. French artist Morelle's work can be used by beginners but is better suited to those with experience. He explores glazes and flat washes, methods for creating mists, sophisticated color blending, and the reasons Renoir and Monet chose their palette colors. The volume is rounded out by a useful gallery of examples from accomplished watercolorists. Both books are recommended. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

Watercolor for the Absolute Beginner based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This book is the best beginners book I have ever come across. You can actually work through the book and finish a Wonderful Watercolor painting! I have about 8 books on 'how to paint with watercolors' but they all lack the very basic idea that a novice artist can be given a project included in this book, that can be easily finished and isn't too overwheming. The finished work can and will be a very nice looking painting, no matter what level of painter you are. It encourages the beginner artist to continue and feel good about their art because they will have a finished watercolor painting on their wall after reading this book.
