Tips and Techniques for Atmospheric Paintings.
In this book Trevor Waugh reveals the secrets of creating watercolours that are exciting and full of atmosphere. He identifies the five key skills and qualities that he believes you should look for in a painting - large washes, transparency, wet-into-wet, soft darks and lights, and bold brushwork - and explains who these can be achieved. Above all, he stresses the important role of colour and light in watercolour paintings, focusing particularly on these aspects throughout the book.
With helpful advice on techniques, using a sketchbook, colour and composition, as well as chapters on painting a wide variety of different subjects, 'Winning With Watercolour' provides both practical instruction and great ideas. The book includes:
- Winning tips: useful checklists highlighting points to remember when painting specific subjects
- Step-by-Step demonstrations: detailed staged paintings of many different subjects
- Practical techniques: essential guidelines on key topics
- Popular subjects: landscapes, flowers, figures and animals in a setting
This book is superbly illustrated with Trevor Waugh's atmospheric paintings, and with its personal approach offers both beginners and artists with some experience a unique guide to painting successful watercolours.
