Soft, flowing effects for atmospheric skies, rivers, seas and landscapes in watercolor are made easy with this guide to a technique known as "wet-into-wet"—painting freely with wet washes, blending and merging colors on the paper. Demonstrating in step-by-step action sequences how to manipulate the flow of color on wet paper, the accomplished author helps artists create beautiful, effortless-looking effects. Sunsets, clouds, trees, hills, boats on the water, snow scenes and stunning skies are among the wide range of subject-matter the author has painted, all produced using a limited palette, a variety of brushes and, on occasions, even a hairdryer.
