Painting with watercolors gives you endless opportunities to create the world you want. You choose whether to let the sun blaze or the rain pour, to move a maple tree here or make the trail wind over there, to subdue a hillside with quiet greens or make a forest glow with dazzling golds and reds. It's not only a matter of what to paint, but how to go about painting it. This book examines, one at a time, the three major elements of landscape painting: water, sky and land. You will be encouraged to try numerous ways of painting each one. Then you can choose the methods that best express how the outdoors speaks to you. Let this reliable collection of tips, techniques, ideas and lessons be your companion on a sure path to creative fulfillment and better watercolor landscapes.
Birds were born -- or rather hatched -- to be painted. But with all the different species, colors, poses and personalities, where is an artist to begin? Right here! In Watercolor Basics: Drawing and Painting Birds, Shirley Porter gives you what she wished for as a beginner: a single, simple source of essential information for the bird-painter. You'll find everything you need to get started -- from basic "bird stuff" (such as how a wing folds) to 24 step-by-step demonstrations that show you how to paint a variety of birds, poses and backgrounds. You'll even find bird-watching tips for spotting important characteristics that will make your subjects both recognizable and realistic. Painting your favorite feathered friends has never been easier -- or more fun!
A treasury of watercolour tricks and techniques discovered through years of painting and experimentation.

Recharge your creative spirit and rediscover the magic that is watercolor! Every watercolorist needs a creative kick in the pants now and then--to keep seeking inspiration when feeling uninspired, to keep going when a painting has stalled, to keep trying when a technique isn't easy to master...sometimes just to keep painting, period. When your artistic well has run dry, you must replenish it. Whether you have spent decades painting in watercolor or are just beginning, the tips and secrets shared by best-selling author and artist Gordon MacKenzie provide the perfect guide when the going gets tough. Get excited about watercolor again as he shows you how to: • Find better approaches to a tired composition • Engage viewers more fully with color, value and well-placed "wee people" • Reinvent a scene that outshines your reference photographs • Dramatize a landscape by focusing on the weather • Nurture your own growth by sharing what you know with others "You don't have to paint the way you paint now. You don't have to paint what you paint now." --Gordon MacKenzie
Provides down-to-earth, lighthearted instructions for developing basic painting design skills, sharing step-by-step demonstrations and game-like tips while placing an emphasis on watercolor techniques.
Charles Reid is one of watercolor's best-loved teachers, a master painter whose signature style captures bright floral still-lifes with a loose spontaneity that adds immeasurably to the whole composition. Portraying the glory of nature in a highly individual way is the ultimate challenge for all painters, and with this book, Charles Reid shares with you the instruction and advice you need to paint fruits, vegetables and flowers that glow. Special "assignments" and step-by-step demonstrations help you master techniques for superior brushwork, edge control, and composition. You'll learn to paint wild daffodils, roses, mums, sunflowers, lilacs, tomatoes, avocados, oranges, strawberries, jars, coffeepots, wine bottles and more. Reid also shows you how to paint flowers in any environment, from the tranquility of a warm kitchen to a windswept beach in Bermuda. You'll create a garden of floral glories--compositions that burst with light, color and realism. Best of all, as your proficiency for capturing the essence of flowers builds, so too will your personal style. Soon your paintings will depict the beauty of nature in your own individual fashion. Let Charles Reid show you how to create beautiful watercolor florals from start to finish!
