You Can Paint Watercolors

You Can Paint Watercolors Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Light on words, heavy on pictures, this totally user-friendly how-to book can turn an absolute beginner of any age, who has never held a paintbrush before, into a productive and proud watercolor painter.

Basics open the book, as readers are shown the range of watercolors and how to mix them. Then simple wash techniques and the painting of light and shadows are presented. Next, step-by-step demonstrations show how to paint separate features of a still life or landscape—fruit, vegetables, flowers, trees, and skies—then how to combine these elements into lovely watercolor paintings.
