Watercolours in A Weekend
Pick up A Brush and Paint your First Picture This WeekendBook - 2000
Pick up a brush--and paint your first picture this very weekend Even a total beginner can quickly accomplish the essential skills needed to portray landscapes and still lifes. Six short courses, devised by one of the most popular artists working today, cover all the most popular subjects. Each lesson--on rendering land and sky, land and sea, trees, buildings, and flowers--starts with practice exercises that focus on a range of watercolor techniques, to do on Saturday; they'll provide a thorough grounding in all the basics. Technical information appears in special feature boxes, and numerous photos guide ever brushstroke you make. Once you've completed the "painting drills," begin the full watercolor. By now, all the instructions will feel familiar, and the palette of mixed paint and color swatch accompanying each step make everything even easier. "Bonus" works by a selection of well-known contemporary artists.
