Capturing Light in Watercolor (Paperback)
Discover Light and Shadow with the Teachings of a Master
Dynamically painting light and shadow in watercolor, world-renowned artist and winner of over a dozen awards from galleries and professional organizations, Marilyn Simandle inspires readers to pick up their brush and join her in step-by-step demonstrations designed to create exquisite luminescence. She reveals her secrets for transforming an image from simple color to radiant energy. In this seminal work, Simandle shares the secrets of her signature style in collaboration with Lewis Lehrman, a professional artist, art teacher, and author of four books on painting. Through clear, easy-to-understand terms, she coaches artists on the relationship between white, the absence of paint, and the mix of color carefully applied in stages. Using this method, artists can build captivating, rich, and complex layers that are crucial to a successful painting. Sharing watercolor techniques which render the illusion of light, the author leads the artist through the design process, demonstrating with floral themes, sun-filled interiors, still lifes, urban settings, and picturesque harbors. A must for any painter wishing to create works that glow with inspiration.
