Loosen up your Watercolours

£65.00

Product description

This beautifully illustrated book, in Collins Artist's Studio series, is aimed at the intermediate painter and explains how to loosen up your watercolours and develop a more spontaneous style of painting. Judi Whitton has specialized in teaching and painting watercolours in a loose style for many years and in this book she shares her experience to enable you to liberate your creativity and achieve more freedom of expression in your work. The book covers many of the traditional watercolour techniques and procedures, such as 'lost and found' edges, wet-into-wet, simplification and decisive brushstrokes, but all with an emphasis on maintaining spontaneity and a lively style. In addition, there are helpful sections on using colour creatively, planning your paintings, painting vignettes - a much overlooked technique - and working outdoors. A number of paintings by other well-known watercolourists, such as John Yardley, Charles Reid and John Palmer, are also included to show different styles of painting in a loose way. Practical exercises and projects, step-by-step demonstrations, studio tips and discussions on a variety of issues combine to make this an ideal book for all those artists who are looking to take the next step and develop their painting with confidence.

Collins Artist's Studio hardback with intact DJ. In very good condition with just a suspicion of corner wear to the boards.

One of those infuriating books which make it look simple - when you know that really ain't! But you ache to have a go!.
