5 Ways to Rescue Desperate WatercolorsBook - 2007 | 1st ed
No more wimpy watercolors! Kill it or cure it!
The end. It happens to the best of artists... that frustrating point in a painting where you don't know how to finish it up, when to stop, or where to go from here. Too often this is the very same stage where half-finished paintings get stacked in the corner and written-off as "hopeless."
This unique, workshop-style book will help you recognize these works not as "bad" or "failed" paintings, merely unfinished. What's more, you'll learn how to take these beautiful starts--that pale painting hiding in your closet or the bombs stashed under your bed--and turn them into finished, gutsy, exhibition-quality pieces.
Follow Susan Webb Tregay's five steps to more successful watercolors, and learn how to finish your painting your way--with polish and pizzazz! You'll discover clean and easy solutions to your painting's problems, debunking once and for all that old myth that watercolor is unforgiving. Fifteen step-by-step demonstrations and many before-and-after examples illustrate the incredible difference these simple techniques can make in your art.
With Master Disaster , you can stop dreading "the end," and start anticipating the big finish!
