Whether you are just starting out with watercolor painting or want to expand your skills and raise your art to the next level, this book has all the inspiration and practical know-how you'll need.

Starting from the very basics, such as choosing the right brushes and practicing color mixes, this book proceeds to tackle every conceivable watercolor technique—from applying a flat wash to experimenting with texture. Techniques and inspiration are then combined in a wide-ranging section on subject matter—from landscapes to botanical illustration, urban scenes, portraiture, and abstraction—which examines the practical considerations of each topic and showcases numerous different approaches to try, with tutorials on achieving particular effects.

Each technique and stylistic approach is demonstrated by a professional artist working on an original painting, which is photographed at different stages of development to give rare insights into the artistic process.

Also featuring content dedicated to the use of watercolor in graphic illustration, as well as how to combine it with other painting and drawing media, Artist's Watercolor Techniques will help you challenge yourself, try new things, and grow as an artist.
We believe in the power of discovery. That's why we create books for everyone that explore ideas and nurture curiosity about the world we live in.
 
From first words to the Big Bang, from the wonders of nature to city adventures, you will find expert knowledge, hours of fun and endless inspiration in the pages of our books.
