WATERCOLOUR IN 10 STEPS


WATERCOLOUR IN 10 STEPS

PATRICIA SELIGMAN    Book Number: 88271    Product format: Paperback

You have set yourself a challenge and are ready to learn to paint in watercolour. In this book, in just ten steps, we are going to work up to painting a still-life composition of fruit - an apple, pear, orange, bunch of bananas, bunch of grapes and a jug on a wooden chopping board. The ten steps start with exploring your palette of colours, looking at their characters, ways of mixing them and trying them out in useful techniques. This will give you a chance to get used to the brushes and the individual properties of the paints. Then we will focus on the separate parts of the still life - each of the five fruit, the ceramic jug, the cloth and the background. The fruit will be studded with a watercolourist's eye, editing information, looking at tone and exploring colour mixes and likely techniques. The book begins with choosing the right materials and a shopping list for papers, brushes and paints, all about preparatory drawing and sketching, watercolour layers, texture, lost and found edges, energy and light, creating drama before taking it further. Painting landscapes involves editing a scene, balancing the geometry and considering aerial perspective and colour temperature. And finally looking at painting a seascape. One of a successful series we have in stock. 144pp in large softback, packed with colour illus and photos.
