Before picking up a paintbrush, an aspiring watercolor artist must first learn how to see. Leading artist and art instructor Hilary Page shows readers how to develop that ability and get the art of watercolor painting right from the start.
Clear, step-by-step lessons and how-to photos help readers explore ways of seeing, drawing, handling watercolor, and composing a painting with the help of specific geometric forms. Step by step, aspiring artists will learn how light and color define a given subject, and then receive hands-on practice creating paintings based on that form. Lessons start with relatively simple concepts and subjects, and then progress toward the more complex techniques. This indispensable manual is ideal for beginning artists and also functions as a concise "study program" for the experienced painter.
