In this 15th volume of the highly celebrated Splash series, 100+ of today's most accomplished watercolor artists share some of their favorite paintings and the "a-ha!" moments behind them.

These artists have found the perfect creative solutions for expressing their unique visions, e it a slice of urban life, a pure white peony, or something as elusive as the spirit of one very special dog. How to depict thousands of birds in flight? Start with a random application of masking fluid. Background competing with your subject? Summon the courage and go for an all-over wash. Searching for a distinctively un-postcard-like composition of Paris's most formidable landmark? Jump the fence peer through a rosebush, and voila!

Splash 15 is about novel approaches, beautiful accents, and fly-by-the-seat-of-the-pants moments, all illustrated through brilliant work and anecdotal captions. Rejoice in the beauty and adaptability of the medium, as well as the ingenuity and passion of its artists. Maybe even discover fresh solutions for telling the kind of stories you want to tell with watercolor.
