This beautiful and inspiring book is nothing less than a tribute to the full potential of watercolour.
Using traditional methods with transparent and opaque media as well as acrylics, Julie will show you how to bring a bright and fresh approach to your work by exploiting colours and using layering, bold composition and much more.
The book is made up of a series of short lessons, demonstrations and tips under broad headings such as Brilliant Color, Simplified, Negative Painting and Watercolors With Acrylics. Within these, you’ll learn such things as the use of asymmetry, how to get to grips with variegated washes, using layers to create depth and how to use abstraction to create form and structure.
The book is packed with illustrations, step-by-step demonstrations and hints and tips. There’s a new idea on virtually every page and you’ll be wanting to put it down and get painting straight away.
There’s a huge amount of painting wisdom here, but so lightly taught that it’s easy to forget you’re learning.
