Independent Publishing Group
Renowned watercolor artist, Terry Harrison, shares his expert advice and no-nonsense tips and techniques for producing effective, lively studies of water in this book for beginner artists that allocates just 30 minutes to a painting. The guide presents quick exercises for painting water in all its moods and variations, including ripples, reflections, puddles, streams, breaking waves, choppy water, surf, riverbeds, and much more. There are then 10 step-by-step demonstrations that can be produced in half an hour: a misty lake, a track with puddles, a ford, a waterfall, a lazy river, a stormy sea, cliffs, fishing from a boat, a sunset estuary, and a fishing boat. Encouraging spontaneity and liveliness, this brisk approach demystifies the painting process and quickly builds skills and confidence in amateur artists.
