Breaking the Rules of Watercolour Book (Hardback) with Shirley Trevena
- Product Info
Watercolour is a demure medium. Conventional wisdom says that it's not the place for experiments or bold use of colours and composition.
Throw all that out of the window, says Shirley Trevena. In this remarkable book, she shows you how to get stunning results by ignoring everything you know. Instead, trust your instincts.
Analysing ten of her own paintings, she reveals how to capture the heart and essence of your subject by concentrating on colours and shapes. The results are by no means abstracts. Everything is recognisable - but with an added perspective you could describe as 'the artist's eye'.
This is not a technical manual. It's about how to see, interpret and tell your viewer how you reacted to your subject. Containing a wealth of information, it will transform the way you work.
Beautifully illustrated, written and produced, this book is a delight to own.
