Summary "Many art books offer advice on how to perform the techniques used by creative watercolorists, but this one goes farther by also explaining the "why" and "when" aspects of using these critical skills. Artful Watercolor exhaustively covers the best uses of light and shadow, color values, mixing custom colors, applying washes, and understanding shape, as well as exploring expressions of harmony and conflict, order and chaos within the composition. Numerous exercises and tips help guide readers through expressive detail work, wet/dry painting, and fixing mistakes. "-- Provided by publisher.
