Painting Water in Watercolor by Christian Wharton
Practical advice, approaches and exercises to improve your watercolor techniques and skills. Learn how to capture the translucency and energy of water in paint with this beautifully illustrated guide. Whether it is the focus of a watercolor painting or part of a wider landscape, water is the element that has the most immediate eye-catching appeal. Capturing it on paper, however, is not always easy, and the variety of subjects and atmospheres to be painted - from furious energy and speed to placid stillness - can be a hindrance to artists. Author Christian Wharton uses finished paintings, sketches and step-by-step projects to help artists organize their compositional and observation skills and also demonstrates the technical side of painting the glory of water in watercolor.
