A guide that shows painters, drawers, doodlers and urban sketchers how to bring their drawings to life with colourful, bold, yet accessible painting methods.
Watercolour sketching is a rapidly emerging technique that enlivens sketches done in pen or pencil with the expressive washes, glazes, and luminous hues of watercolour.
This lushly illustrated resource teaches artists on the go how to sketch with watercolour, rendering subjects efficiently and without inhibitions.
Readers are guided through all aspects of the medium, from fundamental techniques including wet-on-wet, glazing, and washes; materials and supplies; and little known tips and tricks for getting the most out of watercolour (for example, just sprinkling a little salt on your painting creates a texture that's impossible to achieve with a brush).
A strong focus on colour theory provides a solid foundation for enhancing drawings with vibrant hues.
