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.
