Following in the footsteps of Watercolor: Simple, Fast, and Focused is Mel Stabin's latest: The Figure in Watercolor: Simple, Fast, and Focused. Capturing a figure's unique personality and multifaceted quality in watercolor is challenging--but Stabin demonstrates, step by step, how the new artist can capture the figure by painting simply, directly, and with intense focus on the -essence- of a person. Readers will discover tested techniques and hands-on tips for painting portraits, people in an environment, and groups of people, as well as for painting people from photographs. They'll also find a treasury of valuable advice on design, composition, shape, value, color, and more.
