"Capturing Light in Watercolour" By Marilyn Simandle and Lewis Barrett Lehrman

Published by North Light Books. 1997
127 pages

Hard cover with dust cover. Immaculate condition, very richly illustrated.

Watercolor "light" is, in essence, the white of the paper contrasting with the shapes and colors of your washes. In this book, you'll learn how to make the most of this powerful relationship. By working through a series of step-by-step demonstrations - each building on the one before it - you'll gain a practical understanding of how to design your paintings - and plan the light - right from the start; "carve" out your white areas with rich shadows and shapes; juxtapose bright colors against colorful grays; use broken color to "punch up" the point of interest; and achieve a powerful simplicity by seeing your subject as dynamic shapes of color. From thumbnail sketches to finishing touches, watch as Marilyn paints a broad range of subjects...sun-drenched florals, light-filled interiors, dramatic still lifes, cityscapes and harbors. Throughout, she shares her special ways of working - including the way she uses a palette knife to create texture and how she achieves the interesting "Simandle Grays" that fill her shadows.
