Review:

A renowned expert at painting water, Joe Dowden uses the natural translucence of watercolor to capture its beauty. Teaching readers to paint what they see, he shares his simple but painstaking techniques so that they can achieve the same extraordinary, realistic and dramatic results. Novice artists will learn the essential tips to making water look wet, and from there they can paint flat, still water, puddles, rippled water, a sparkling sea, shallow water and a deep, calm river. Beginning artists will learn the essentials of watercolor painting from Joe's tuition, and even seasoned painters will have plenty to learn from his expertise at painting water, which is vital to so many landscapes. Beautifully and profusely illustrated throughout, "How to Paint Water in Watercolour" is thoroughly 'user friendly' in organization and presentation, making it an ideal instructional textbook for art class curriculums, the personal reading lists of aspiring artists, as well as community and academic library Art Instruction collections and supplemental studies lists.
