Art - Techniques - Watercolor Painting
First of all, it is NOT a step-by-step how-to-do-it book that tells you how best to dip you brush into a pot of watercolors and voila an artist is born! No. It is a small book filled with interesting paintings along a “modern” line. Each of the paintings is show on the right side and an explanation of the tools and techniques used by the artist is on the left side.
You’ll get an introduction to techniques and terms on a small scale so you can begin your dabbling in this forgivable medium. Or if you've been painting awhile, you might learn a new technique that will really make your painting come alive.
So now I just need to go out and acquire a bit of stuff - you know brushes, paints, pens, and paper to begin. Then I can see if I have any talent for adding watercolor to create something that might be lovely to look upon. Something with which I can express feelings of joy, moodiness, hurt, love.
The anticipation just might be enough to get me moving. So do I really Just Add Watercolor?
Pssssssttt…. I do have a daughter that dabbles a bit with paints and she enjoys using watercolors. Perhaps this little book will be best suited for her. But then….. perhaps I should give it a real try myself.
