Splash Retrospective, 20 Years of Contemporary Watercolour Excellence

£49.99

Product description

The best of the best--20 years of watercolour brilliance! Over the past 20+ years, Splash has built a reputation as the premier showcase of contemporary watercolour ... a gathering place for the best work and freshest ideas from today's top artists. Page by page, the series' 14 editions have painted a masterful portrait of the current state of the medium. Now, Splash Retrospective celebrates the best of the best in one big, breathtaking compilation! Inside you'll find everything you've come to expect from this series: big art (in concept, execution and reproduction value), innovative techniques, and first-hand insight on what fuelled the artist. Plus, for the first time, series editor Rachel Rubin Wolf shares her expert perspective on what it is about these paintings that made her stop and take notice. What made them "come alive" and stand out from the thousands that crossed her desk? More than mere technical mastery, she cites such elements as originality, unusual subjects and poses, moments of whimsy ... and always, the artist's love and respect for their subject, be it sunflower divas, and exotic locale, a beloved family member, or a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. It's an exceptional collection for artists striving to create memorable work, and a simply stunning book to grace the coffee table of any lover of the medium. 230+ brilliantly reproduced watercolour paintings. More than 200 artists represented. A diversity of styles, presented in subject-themed chapters--still lifes, portraits, landscapes, animals and more. Revealing commentary from the artists and editor. Book condition throughout very good: dust jacket complete, unclipped and unmarked, cloth covers very good and all pages crisp and clean. A beautiful copy of this wonderful book.

Oxfam Bookshop Shaftesbury

Our Oxfam bookshop in Shaftesbury is situated at the top of one of Britain's loveliest hills. Gold Hill affords a magical view across the Blackmore Vale and the bookshop lies between it and the old Abbey grounds which date back to 888AD. We can't claim to have manuscripts of that antiquity but we do have an extensive selection of beautiful books from our large children's section through fiction, biography, poetry, classic literature and humour to a fine collection of works on art, sport, cooking and gardening. In addition to this comprehensive and exciting array of books we also carry a large and varied stock of vinyl albums and singles both old and new and a fine stock of classical and popular CDs and DVDs. Our lovely selection of cards for all occasions is also very popular. Staffed predominantly by volunteers we're a friendly and helpful bunch and look forward to seeing even more interested music and book fans soon!
