Publisher Comments:

What are the advantages of laying wet paint onto a wet surface? Paint disperses in lovely and unique ways on the wet paper. When you stroke paint directly onto a dry paper, the results are fairly similar, even if the pigment types and the papers vary. However, when you paint onto a wet surface, the paint floats and then settles naturally onto the paper. The results will vary considerably depending on pigment and paper type. Once you learn to work with the variability of this type of paining, your work will take on a richness and depth of color and texture that are impossible to achieve in any other manner. And it is a joy to have the materials participate in the creative process...This is the essence of watercolor — the delicate balance between control and the natural flow of the medium.
  • Clearly demonstrates a technique that's essential to mastering watercolors
  • Fantastic value: lavishly illustrated, detailed text, and a great price
  • Only reference devoted exclusively to the wet-into-wet technique
