Marcia Moses, whose award-winning Easy Watercolor taught beginners the basic skills of the art, now takes painters the next step in their creative journey. These lessons are meant for intermediates, and they're as illuminating and exquisitely illustrated as the ones in her first volume. After reviewing the fundamentals, Moses delves deeply into color (understanding its properties, creating harmony and conflict, mixing exciting hues); techniques in action, from backgrounds and texture to layering, shading, and brushstrokes; and painting with feeling. See how to add figures and set them in motion. Capture nature, including moody skies and watery landscapes. Put all the elements together for a satisfying finished work. Above all, Moses gives developing painters the gift of understanding how to use their imaginations--the key to artistic success. A Selection of the Crafters Choice Book Club.
