Watercolors can capture the subtle and magical nuances of a landscape better than any other medium. Now, amateur artists can explore the natural and exciting affinity of watercolor and landscape with the help of twenty-three talented artists from around the world. Using "inspirational example," this exquisite volume looks at every type of landscape painting, including rural scenes, seascapes and waterways, urban and cityscapes, and rocks and mountainscapes. Through carefully selected, stunning examples of their work, the artists explain their visions and individual methods of creating images that vary from the traditional to the experimental. For each piece, the artists reveal what drew them to their subjects, the thinking behind the materials they chose, and the techniques they used to bring their ideas to life. Sketches, compositional diagrams, and color analyses help highlight the paintings' evolutions. Bonus: a fully illustrated glossary of specific techniques and technical terms.
