Description
The most thorough guide to watercolour materials and techniques ever assembled in a single volume, this is the book for anyone working with watercolours, from beginners to experienced artists looking to develop more professional skills. Starting with a comprehensive, up-to-date review of the tools and techniques required to master the art of watercolour, the book then presents detailed lessons in basic drawing skills. Design concepts are explored: line and shape, light and dark, perspective, and composition. All the major watercolour painting techniques are shown: methods for laying washes, preserving white areas, glazing, establishing form, creating textural effects, lifting colour, masking, and using resists. With colour the driving force behind the author s whole approach to painting and his distinctive "organic" handling of the medium, colour theories and strategies are clearly explained and applied to a wide range of subjects--still life, figures, landscapes, and architecture--some of which pair watercolours with other mediums such as gouache, pastel, and collage. An ongoing reference source, this is a book that watercolourists will turn to again and again for guidance. David Dewey, who has exhibited work in dozens of solo and group shows and is represented in numerous corporate and private collections, is represented by Taristcheff in New York. He lives in Blairstown, New Jersey.
