This new title gives art students and hobbyists a complete course in the many different techniques applicable to watercolour painting.

An introductory chapter describes the pigments, brushes, papers, and other needed equipment, and shows how to use them to best effect. Following chapters present 14 distinct approaches to watercolour art, each approach starting with an example of a finished work by a famous watercolour artist. Among them are a Cezanne painting of a woodland scene that emphasises the transparent effects that can be achieved with watercolours.

A strikingly different exercise shows a Turner seascape, and demonstrates how he achieved dramatic effects by applying pigments to wet paper. A watercolour portrait by pop artist Chuck Close demonstrates the pointillist technique, and Robert Delaunay's Hommage a Bleriot demonstrates use of watercolour in abstract art.

Students are presented with step-by-step exercises to master these and the other creative techniques shown throughout the book. Full-colour photos, reproductions, and illustrations on every page.
