Step-by-Step Art School: Watercolour

f you find the fresh-glowing translucency of watercolor irresistible, here's how to get the best results possible--while avoiding the problems many newcomers experience. Find out what topics are particularly suited to the medium, and start with washes (flat, wet-on-wet, and more), which form the basis of any watercolor painting. Lift out color, explore the paper's quality and grain, add texture, and spatter. Soon you'll have beautiful pictures of a beach scene, brilliant-hued flowers, a child with a panda, a boat, and others.
