About Watercolor Techniques for Artists and Illustrators
Professional artists demonstrate every aspect of their craft so that you can master all the techniques of watercolor and gain ideas and inspiration for subject matter and stylistic approaches.
Starting from the very basics, such as choosing the right brushes and practicing color mixes, the book proceeds to tackle every conceivable watercolor technique, from applying a flat wash to experimenting with texture. Techniques and inspiration are then combined in a wide-ranging section on subject matter–from landscapes to botanical illustrations, urban scenes, portraiture, and abstraction–with practical considerations of each topic and numerous approaches to try, plus tutorials on achieving particular effects. Featuring extensive content dedicated to the use of watercolor in graphic illustration, as well as how to combine it with other painting and drawing media, Watercolor Techniques for Artists and Illustrators will help you challenge yourself, try new things, and grow as an artist.
