Watercolor For the First Time is intended to demystify the delicate art of watercolor and to serve as a true primer in this art. The reader learns about materials - paints, brushes, and paper - and is offered information and advice on setting up a work station; basic techniques, and even and a comprehensive lesson on color theory. The aspiring watercolorist will build basic skills by developing his sense of perspective, composition and design. This tutorial also discusses patterns, light & shadow, and various techniques for painting popular elements of nature such as trees, skies, and water to name a few. Unique to this book is an open-ended approach intended to encourage the individual reader to implement his or her own creative ideas into the art. Within each chapter, a variety of choices are provided to help stimulate creativity, and exercises are designed to encourage personal thought and interpretation.
