The beauty of a watercolor painting lies in its diaphanous layers, delicate strokes, and luminous washes. However, the very features that define the beauty of the medium can make it difficult to master. This complete guide to understanding the relationships between color, value, wetness, and composition unravels the mysteries of watercolor to help your practice evolve. Experienced teacher and acclaimed artist Tom Hoffmann offers a unique, inquiry-based approach that shows you how to translate any subject into the language of watercolor. With Hoffmann as your guide, you’ll learn the key questions to ask yourself at every turn and time-tested methods to help you reach solutions. Hoffmann’s thorough explanations and step-by-step demonstrations delineate the process of composing a painting in watercolor, while art from more than thirty-five past and present masters, including John Singer Sargent, Ogden Pleissner, George Post, Emil Kosa, Jr., Mary Whyte, Trevor Chamberlain, Lars Lerin, Torgeir Schjølberg, Piet Lap, Leslie Frontz, and Alvaro Castagnet serve to illustrate and inspire. Whether you’re a serious beginner or a seasoned practitioner, this book will guide you toward the all-important balance between restraint and risk-taking that every watercolorist seeks.

Now published in full color for the first time, and with many new illustrations, this revised edition of The Art of Watercolor is a complete update of the classic text on this most popular of mediums. In a refreshing and entertaining style, Charles Le Clair covers every aspect of painting in watercolor, giving advice on essential materials and providing easy-to-follow sequential instruction on both traditional and special techniques. Here you will learn how to stretch paper and what colors you need in a basic palette; how to lay flat and graded washes on wet or dry paper; how to master value and color; how to set up a still life and develop a composition; and how to paint wet-into-wet. You'll also learn the tricks and thoughtful applications of special effects like dry-brush, salting, lifting, scraping, masking, spattering, and collage. But The Art of Watercolor is much more than a how-to manual - it presents a comprehensive course of study. Unlike any other watercolor instruction book, it integrates studio lessons on the technical and esthetic properties of the medium with art history. In covering the range of styles and methods, the author shows how a master watercolorist - John Singer Sargent, Paul Cezanne, Charles Demuth, Wassily Kandinsky - applied each approach in a particular work. You'll learn in detail how the different styles, everything from the realism of Winslow Homer to the expressionism of Charles Burchfield, represent the painting strategies these artists adopted with specific goals in mind. Up-to-the-minute applications of all these techniques are illustrated in the works of exciting contemporary masters as well - such as Andrew Wyeth, Janet Fish, Philip Pearlstein, and Neal Welliver. Exploring the three main areas of still life, landscape, and figure painting, The Art of Watercolor is a beautiful resource that professional artists, teachers, and students will value as the most informative and delightful book of its kind.
