This is a guide to painting water, in all its moods, from tranquil ponds to stormy seas. Water is an important feature for any artist to paint, and the author here shows the stages from painting still water to ripples and waves. The approach is to integrate these skills into successful landscapes.
Water is an important compositional feature for any artist, and this guide to the technique of painting water in watercolours covers every aspect of water painting - from seas and harbours, to lakes, rivers and streams. Using stage-by-stage examples, the author demonstrates the initial stage of painting still water, through the handling of ripples and waves, and finally to stormy seas. His approach is to integrate these new skills of water painting into successful landscapes, and also how to capture the banksides, vales, cliffs, harbours and boats which complete a waterside landscape. This comprehensive guide aims to demonstrate to artists of all abilities how to integrate the life and vivacity of water into their work. Michael B. Edwards is the author of "Painting Towns and Cities".
