Overview

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.

As a new watercolorist, I was looking for the definitive guide to tools, techniques, and tips. This book is exactly what I was looking for! Not only is it very informative but it is extremely lovely to look at. The illustrations are presented as if you were leafing through the author's own sketchbook and his many paintings throughout are inspiring!
