This book is well written but it's for a complete beginner in watercolour. It has basic information about watercolour techniques and some exercises step by step. It explains how to make a wash, wet in wet, wet on dry, blotting, etc. It has no information about pigments used and the names are not usual like peach, which it's a name only student-grade manufacturers would use. I find it weird the title has the name "modern" when all these techniques shown should have centuries... A better title would be Watercolor Botanicals for beginners.
Me encanta! El libro está hecho con mimo, ças imágenes son muy bonitas. Sarah explica todos los pasos muy bien detallados, explica las mezclas de color al detalle, y propone muchos ejercicios, de los que da las todas las plantillas para que el dibujo no sea un impedimento para realizarlos. La verdad que si esta temática te gusta, no puede faltarte!!
La encuadernación es preciosa. El mejor libro para aprender acuarela y enfocado a la botánica. Muy recomendable. Detalla minuciosamente cada uno de los pasos para saber cómo usar el pincel, papeles y consistencia de las mezclas, así como las principales técnicas. Incluye láminas para transferencia de los proyectos propuestos.
Sarah’s explanations are literally step-by-step. Such as take your brush and move it to your jar of water. Bring your watered brush back to your palate and mix up a magic sauce of 90% water and 10% paint. Bring your brush loaded with paint to your paper. And because it’s so carefully crafted moment by moment you actually get to learn what it is you’re doing, how the paint is moving on the paper, What affects you’re creating - instead of just copying an image you actually learn how to paint and develop sustainable skills. I love this book so much and an doing all the projects for a second time.
I am so loving this book and I think that anyone who is interested in learning about the different technique to watercolor should most definitely add this one to there collection ... this book also is hardcover with a coil binding so well put together and a beautiful piece to keep on your coffee table .. I’m hopeful by the time I finish reading this book from front to back I will be a better artist
