How to Make a Watercolor Paint Itself : Experimental Techniques for Achieving Realistic Effects Paperback
by Nita Engle
Award-winning artist Nita Engle's breakthrough approach to watercolour shows readers how to combine spontaneity and control to produce glowing, realistic paintings.
Her method begins with action-filled exercises that demonstrate how to play with paint, following no rules.
Subsequent step-by-step projects add planning to the mix, demonstrating how to turn loose washes into light-filled watercolours with textural effects achieved by spraying, sprinkling, pouring, squirting, or stamping paint.
Engle's approach, and her results, are dramatic and dynamic.
