Product Description

Ever wonder how watercolors can look so unique, so different, so layered? The New Encyclopedia of Watercolor Techniques explains traditional methods like laying washes and working wet-in-wet, as well as unusual techniques such as spattering, feathering, and creating texture with plastic wrap and aluminum foil! Step-by-step pictures and text explain each process, and a finished picture shows the end effect.

This third edition features tips on how to get the best results from each method; suggested applications; cross-references to other techniques; and a new fourth chapter that outlines key principles and practice that every artist needs to know. 144 indexed pages, softcover. 3rd Edition.

Publisher's Description

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 you’ll need to master the art of watercolor.
