Everyone loves watercolors. They’re easy to carry around and they don’t call for complicated special materials. But getting started with watercolors can be daunting. What paper, paint, and brushes do you really need? How do you mix colors without getting mud? How do you create those clear, glowing tones? Wonderful World of Watercolor guides beginners through these basics and on to the rewards of painting beautiful watercolors. Author Mary Baumgartner has more than twenty years of experience in teaching painting workshops. Now she shares her down-to-earth approach with readers everywhere—with simple instructions on everything from choosing materials to creating a palette, from color values to capturing favorite subjects like pets, fruits and vegetables, skies and clouds, and more. Baumgartner’s warm, reassuring tone is perfect for neophyte artists and anyone who needs a bit of extra support to get started.
