By examining the way that two different artists interpret the same subject, aspiring watercolor artists can learn how different approaches affect the final outcome of a painting and how to identify the methods that will enable them to realize their own vision! Double demonstrations of 12 popular painting subjects -- including flowers, landscapes, portraits, still lifes, and more -- are shown side-by-side so that artists can compare and contrast the two painting styles.
This full-color book also offers essential information regarding basic painting techniques and theory, including information on watercolor materials, washes, drybrush, light and shadow, brushstrokes, and texture.
Naomi Tydeman is a self-taught watercolorist who has been painting professionally for more than 15 years. She has an honor's degree in education and is an elected member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour. She has her own art gallery located in Wales, United Kingdom.
