Mastering fundamental drawing and watercolour techniques forms the basis of successful watercolour painting - the author starts by leading readers through a series of examples and exercises that will introduce them to tonal drawing, colour mixing, applying washes, and much more. Readers will then be ready to move on to the seven themed sections designed to help them in their specific areas of interest. Each theme starts by demonstrating the basic brushstrokes required for that subject, then moves on to a series of problem-and-solution spreads, where annotation provides guidance on how vivid depictions of each component can be achieved. After the problem-and-solution spreads the author shows how the watercolour techniques covered can be combined to produce a complete painting which all integrates all the lessons learnt. The information throughout is presented clearly with plenty of useful annotations in a handy portable size so readers can take it wherever their painting takes them.

Trudy Friend is an experienced and accomplished artist and teacher who runs specialist courses in all media. Her special passion for drawing and watercolour painting led her to devise the highly popular 'Problems and Solutions' column for the UK's Leisure Painter magazine on which this, and her previous title Drowing Problems and Solutions, are based. She has also written for The Artist and Artists and Illustrators magazines and lives in Monmouthshire, Wales.From Library Journal:
This is a good book on how to paint but an even better book on how not to paint. Based on the author's popular "Problems and Solutions" series in Leisure Painter magazine, this volume clearly and systematically teaches the fine details of watercolor-how light reflects on green glass, how a curved copper surface reflects and distorts the room around it, and the myriad details of painting foliage, flowers, animals, and buildings. Most demonstrations begin with an extremely useful illustration of everything that can go wrong in a painting: for instance, an image of an old car in the weeds suffers from poorly mixed colors, its bumpers and headlights are out of perspective, and misused negative shapes make the car's grill look flat. This is a highly recommended supplement to, though not a replacement for, Zoltan Szabo's 70 Favorite Watercolor Techniques.
