Description

Colorways: Watercolor Flowers teaches artists of all skill levels how to paint harmonious, vibrant, and colorful renditions of flora.

Calling all aspiring artists! Grab your paints because it's time to explore key watercolor techniques, including washes, gradations, painting wet-into-wet, glazing, and understanding the color wheel to create harmony in your art. With Colorways: Watercolor Flowers, you will create vibrant and colorful floral paintings while mastering how to use color for maximum effect. You'll also learn where to find artistic inspiration, how to become a “visual collector,” and how to add fauna to your floral paintings. While step-by-step instructions are included for some flower varieties, most projects offer inspiration and tips that allow for personalization using mixed-media techniques, as opposed to a specific template to follow. You can learn to stamp, use tissue paper, create monograms, and collage using the gorgeous artwork and instructions in this book.

Colorways is a new series from Walter Foster that teaches artists of all skill levels how to create innovative, inspired artwork full of color and imagination. Focusing on creating expressive pieces over realistic scenes, Colorways shows artists how to break the "rules" of color and let their imaginations and artwork soar to new heights. For more fun books in the Colorways series, also check out Acrylic Animals and Watercolor Animals.
