Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A practical, stimulating, and superbly illustrated book for the intermediate watercolorist who is looking for greater challenges in their work. Shirley Trevena's watercolors are visually inspiring, vibrant with color, and strong in composition. This book shows what stunning results she achieves and how she does it by taking risks. Taking you through her paintings from the first concept to the finished piece, Shirley explains and illustrates her techniques for producing exciting, luminous, and colorful paintings. Although watercolor is a difficult medium to handle, Shirley maintains that you get the best results if you have no sense of fear and just let yourself enjoy watercolor's fascinating versatility. Contents include how to compose a picture, painting large scale and small scale works, and taking risks with color. Readers will learn to experiment with color, composition, and tone to produce exciting still life, landscape, and flower paintings.
