Book Description

5 Sep 1993
Karen Simmons explores the ever-changing effects of colour on flowers and the landscape, and the ways in which it can be used to create atmosphere and mood in watercolour painting. Attempting to put down what is seen on to paper is daunting for any artist. Karen Simmons shows how to overcome initial difficulties by planning and making preliminary sketches before starting to paint. She discusses materials and palettes for different subjects, and looks at the behaviour of various colours in water and how they can be mixed for exciting effects. Central chapters include detailed demonstrations and explanations of paintings with subjects such as landscapes, waterscapes, skies, flowers and the seasons.

A bit expensive, but proved very useful to help painting skills. Have also passed on to others in my painting group, and they too have found it of benefit.
