101 techniques: watercolor

A visual instruction guide that teaches all aspects of watercolor painting

The best way to become a good watercolorist is to paint, and then to keep right on painting one watercolor after another. The more paintings you complete, the better a painter you will become. This book is specifically designed to keep you busy painting--and to help you get better at it with every watercolor you complete. You'll find a total of 101 exercises, each exercise consisting of step-by-step illustrated and captioned sequences. Complete an exercise successfully, and you will have mastered a new and different technique! Though all exercises are quite short, each shows you precisely what you need to know in order to make it your own. Each exercise comes with captioned directions that include the materials you will need and a clear indication of its level of difficulty. With 101 exercises to choose from, both beginners and professionals will find plenty of examples to match their skill levels and keep themselves busy expanding and improving their technique.
