THE BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO PAINTING WATERCOLORS., Williams, Rosemary.

Author Name    Williams, Rosemary.

Title   THE BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO PAINTING WATERCOLORS.

Publisher    Bison, London, 1993, first edition.

Seller ID   22063

80 pp, 4to (12 1/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 1858410061 Profusely illustrated in colour and b&w. "(An) invaluable manual designed to entice beginners and enthusiasts of all levels of ability to paint for their own pleasure. Just like reading and writing, drawing and painting can be taught. This clearly written and richly illustrated book takes the reader step by step through a series of exercises, explaining both theory and technique in an informative and accessible way. The m edium of watercolor has fascinated artists for many years, and reached a peak with British landscapists such as Turner and Constable. This book discusses both the English method, which uses no white but allows the paper to show through the l a y e r s o f wash, and the radical and dramatic effects that can be achieved by using gouache and mixed media....Specially commissioned artwork in both color and black and white complements the text in explaining how to choose and prepare mater i al s; h ow t o d ra w and lay a wash; how to manipulate color; and how to use and apply a wide range of techniques. Over 90 glorious full-color illustrations include both historical examples and a fascinating selection from the work of contempo ra ry art ist s, pro vi di ng a superb guide to a universlly appealing subject." Slight waviness to fore-edge of textblock. Dust jacket has light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, two very tiny staple holes at top of front panel, sl igh t f adin g to sp ine col or.
