Watercolorists paint more landscapes than any other subject. The ideal medium for capturing the drama and beauty of fall foliage, shadows on snowbanks, and rapidly moving cloud formations, watercolors encourage painters to work with speed and spontaneity. This easy-to-follow guide, enhanced with 122 illustrations (including 60 in full color), contains all the information artists need to paint a successful watercolor landscape. You'll learn how to use washes, drybrush, and wet-in-wet techniques to paint mountains, rocks, and mist as well as how to apply color when painting the sky, trees, and terrain. The heart of the book can be found in seven expert step-by-step painting demonstrations that allow you to study and master every significant operation involved in rendering deciduous and evergreen trees, hills, a lake, snow and ice, clouds, and a sunset. You'll also find a wealth of helpful hints on selecting landscape subjects, composition, lighting, brushwork, and much else. In short, Watercolor Landscapes Step by Step is an indispensable, practical manual for novices, but it will also provide inspiration and serve as a helpful review for experienced artists.
