Overview

Watercolour Problems and Solutions

A Trouble-Shooting Handbook

By Trudy Friend

This invaluable handbook for all watercolorists takes a practical problem-and-solution approach to painting a range of popular subjects, showing common mistakes and how to rectify them.

Friend begins by leading readers through a series of examples and exercises that will introduce them to tonal drawing, color mixing, applying washes, and much more.

She also provides seven themed sections designed to help readers master more specific areas of interest, including trees and foliage; skies and water; flowers, fruits and vegetables; and animals and buildings. Each theme demonstrates the basic brushstrokes required for that subject, then moves on to a series of related problem-and-solution pages.

Finally, Friend shows how these watercolor techniques can be combined to produce a complete painting that integrates all the lessons learned previously.

Trudy Friend is an experienced and accomplished artist who teaches specialist courses in all media. She is the author of Drawing Problems and Solutions, and has written for several magazines. She lives in Monmouthshire, Wales.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This is a good book on how to paint but an even better book on how not to paint. Based on the author's popular "Problems and Solutions" series in Leisure Painter magazine, this volume clearly and systematically teaches the fine details of watercolor-how light reflects on green glass, how a curved copper surface reflects and distorts the room around it, and the myriad details of painting foliage, flowers, animals, and buildings. Most demonstrations begin with an extremely useful illustration of everything that can go wrong in a painting: for instance, an image of an old car in the weeds suffers from poorly mixed colors, its bumpers and headlights are out of perspective, and misused negative shapes make the car's grill look flat. This is a highly recommended supplement to, though not a replacement for, Zoltan Szabo's 70 Favorite Watercolor Techniques. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
