Description
In words, color photos, and art renditions this guide provides detailed explanations of art materials and how accomplished artists use them to achieve desired effects in the various media. The emphasis in this book is not on completing a finished watercolor, but on how to select and use the right materials for the right project, along with practical solutions to common artists' problems. Topics are treated in the form of easy-to-follow step-by-step directions. This volume is a valuable reference source, both for the art classroom and for use by self-teaching hobbyists. This guide gives detailed instructions for using both tube and cake watercolors. It explains how they work best when employing both wet and dry paper techniques. There are also descriptions of different brushes, as well as the best ways to use the many related materials watercolor artists will need including inks and pencils, masking tape, sponges, protective sprays, razor blades, and other items. Students are shown how to achieve brushwork control and how to mix colors on paper in this often tricky medium. - from Amzon
