Painting Expressive Watercolour By Bridget Woods Cover Image


This practical guide allows artists to learn to express sensations and ideas through watercolor painting

Watercolor offers great potential for expression. Its fluidity, full color range, generous spread, and variety of marks can portray a likeness, a response, a feeling—even the notions of time and speed. It explains the importance of color, tone, shape, texture, and scale through exercises and shared techniques. But it also encourages the artist to explore the joy of the medium, to develop handling skills, confidence, and to find their unique painting "voice." Included is advice on getting started, such as collecting materials, the fundamentals, and mark-making; ideas to trigger the imagination for developing personal style; and a variety of images to inspire and encourage. There is also help and advice throughout to practice new skills and gain confidence with a medium that has the potential magnificence of a "full orchestra," but which can be slipped into the pocket.
