CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Learn to paint in watercolor—at any age!
• Down-to-earth, you-can-do-it instructions and ideas
• Surefire techniques plus reassuring text
• Basics build to a final three-day watercolor workshop
Everyone loves watercolors. They’re easy to carry around and they don’t call
for complicated special materials. But getting started with watercolors can be
daunting. What paper, paint, and brushes do you really need? How do you mix
colors without getting mud? How do you create those clear, glowing tones?
Wonderful World of Watercolor guides beginners through these basics and on to
the rewards of painting beautiful watercolors. Author Mary Baumgartner has more
than twenty years of experience in teaching painting workshops. Now she shares
her down-to-earth approach with readers everywhere—with simple instructions on
everything from choosing materials to creating a palette, from color values to
capturing favorite subjects like pets, fruits and vegetables, skies and clouds,
and more. Baumgartner’s warm, reassuring tone is perfect for neophyte artists
and anyone who needs a bit of extra support to get started.
