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.

Book Description Search Press. Book Condition: New. No Jacket. Joe Dowden is one of the best painters of water around. He's also one of the best at explaining his working methods and this comprehensive guide will tell you everything you need to know. From still lakes to rushing rivers by way of wet pavements and sparkling seas, Joe will show you how to bring life, light and movement to this often tricky subject. Beginning with handy guides to composition, colour, tone and perspective, your basic skills will develop with constant exercises and practice. Joe demonstrates ways to capture deep and sunlit water, reflections and ripples. The trick throughout is to create detail by suggesting rather than over-working it. A series of seven extended demonstrations then brings together everything you've learnt so far. You'll see how to put in figures and wildlife, as well as how to deal with foregrounds and backgrounds and create recession in larger landscapes. This is a thorough tour that should keep you happy and informed for a long time to come. Search Press - Paperback - 144 pages - Colour throughout. Bookseller Inventory # JDGPWB
