Many art books offer advice on how to perform the techniques used by creative watercolourists, but this one goes further by also explaining the why and when aspects of using these critical skills. "Artful Watercolor" exhaustively covers the best uses of light and shadow, colour values, mixing custom colours, applying washes and understanding shape, as well as exploring expressions of harmony and conflict, order and chaos within the composition. Numerous exercises and tips help guide readers through expressive detail work, wet/dry painting and fixing mistakes.
