The emphasis of this exciting new watercolor title is on "show me" instruction rather than "tell me." Accordingly, everything possible has been illustrated in graphic terms. Author Malcolm Beattie begins with a simple overview of classic watercolor techniques, perfect for beginning and advanced painters alike.

He demonstrates washes, direct painting, glazing, movement, pigment application, directional brushstrokes and modeling for expression. Every element is detailed simply and colorfully.

Beattie also provides twenty-two exercises that follow a logical progression from simple to more complex. A variety of scenes are included, from beaches and boats to figures in the street. Each exercise comes with a list of materials, techniques, and special "Beware!" sidebars that inform readers of the challenges in each scene.

Other topics covered include choosing a subject, composition and design, drawing for simplification, counterchange, limited palette painting and placing figures in the landscape.

Malcolm Beattie is one of Australia's best watercolorist. He has been teaching watercolor to students of all skill levels for many years. He lives in Melbourne, Australia.
