Watercolor Techniques: Painting Light & Color in Landscapes & Cityscapes


"No other medium is as magical and enjoyable as watercolor."

In Watercolor Techniques, Reardon covers it all, from answers to beginners' most vexing problems (What is the proper ratio of pigment and water? How do I lay down an even wash? Why do my paintings look so washed out?) to understanding the trifecta of perspective, value, and color. He shows how to paint whites that sparkle and shadows that glow and how to conjure the atmosphere of a particular place and time.

Packed with expert advice for infusing scenes with light and color, Watercolor Techniques pays special attention to architectural subjects, which have become very popular among watercolor artists in recent years. It's illustrated with gorgeous example paintings made around the world. Eight start-to-finish demonstrations are included, so you can see the key concepts in action.
