Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The technique of watercolor painting—applying pigment mixed with water to a surface—has a long and noble tradition. It was known in China as long ago as the third century, and has been practiced in the rest of the world for at least 300 years.

This vivid and informative book brings this technique to the modern-day artist. Filled with a complete range of water-based media, it presents more than 30 techniques—explained with easy-to-follow instructions and step-by-step photography to guide and inspire.

The Encyclopedia of Watercolor Techniques will provide you with everything youll need to master the art of watercolor.

Book News Annotation:

Craig, a writer, editor, and artist, and Harrison, an artist and author, outline different watercolor methods used by artists, such as laying washes, working wet-in-wet, reserving highlights and lifting out, and unusual techniques like spattering, feathering, and creating texture with plastic wrap and aluminum foil. Examples are provided for each of the techniques and a gallery of paintings by different artists demonstrates various styles and effects. Revised and updated, this edition has new techniques reflecting advances in pigment technology; a new chapter on key principles and practices like understanding color and tone, working with light and shade, creating spatial depth, developing a personal style, the rules of good composition, and other topics; and a new section on tools and materials.
