Format: Paperback
I don't actually paint in transparent, traditional watercolor but this book was available at my local library and I wondered if this book covered gouache or watercolor pencils. It doesn't, but I learned so much from the relatively short section on colors and color mixing. He was able to clearly explain why certain colors get certain results and how to use different colors to best effect. I'd be interested in reading that artist's book from which the excerpt came.

The book also had a section on materials, how to use the brushes to make different effects, and how to paint different types of paintings--landscapes, flowers, falling-down buildings with rust, up-close nature, snow effects, windows, rain, and so on. There was enough detail that I felt I could understand how to get the same result but each artist seemed to have one technique down really well and just repeated it again and again. Luckily, we had a variety of artists to learn from.
