Product description

Watercolour is practiced by many but mastered by few. This accessible and clear workbook is both a practical guide and an informative history. Beginning with a 1-day course, the chapters cover technique, equipment, general theory, painting plein air, and conservation. The authors also examine the work of watercolor masters, among them Claude Lorrain, Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, John Constable, J.M.W. Turner, and John Ruskin.
