Watercolor Energies: A No-Nonsense Approach to Watercolor Painting, Design and Esthetics by Frank Webb

Award-winning watercolorist Frank Webb’s vibrant and inspiring works have captivated audiences for decades. And as a workshop teacher, Webb is beloved for his insightful instruction and careful eye. Now, thanks to this one-of-a-kind book, you can learn to paint vital, dynamic watercolors under the guidance of Frank Webb himself.

With helpful tips and lessons for painters of all skill levels, Watercolor Energies is a carefully organized book that focuses on practical, mechanical skills and conceptual thinking in equal measure. Webb emphasizes the importance of personal convictions, philosophies, and esthetics, but also covers more conventional art topics like design, space, texture, pattern, and brush technique.

Watercolor Energies features numerous examples as well as several step-by-step painting demonstrations. A book that will be read and re-read time and time again, Watercolor Energies is perfect for beginners and seasoned watercolorists alike.
