Self-taught painter Blume discovered her love of watercolor painting less than five years ago after watching countless instructional videos on the internet. Her journey led her to create this easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide to mastering the medium. Blume’s intention is for this book to serve as a primer for the beginner and a quick reference for more seasoned watercolorists. After an introduction to supplies needed to begin, budding painters can work their way through 30 increasingly complex wilderness scenes. Each chapter focuses on a different aspect of nature painting, such as skies, trees, or mountains, culminating in the final “five lessons” bringing all the elements together. Along the way, students learn various techniques in manipulating watercolor application to achieve different effects.
VERDICT This solid, simple introduction to painting with watercolors can help beginning and veteran artists alike, whether they are learning in a classroom or following the path of self-instruction.
