Art Journey America Landscape: This dynamic showcase of the work of approximately 100 top contemporary American master artists takes readers on an enjoyable trip around the country with each painting accompanied by such thoughts as why the place is special to the artist (forests, Western landscapes, etc.); the techniques and processes she/he used to achieve his or her style (realistic, expressionistic, abstracted, etc.); why his or her piece is a significant work; what sets it apart from all the paintings he/she has created; what inspires him or her to create; and how he or she expresses that creative spark.
Watercolor In Motion: It’s the interplay between water and paint that makes this medium so exciting. It’s no wonder, then, that wet-into-wet is one of the most popular methods for painting in watercolor. This unique book/DVD workshop shows you how to “go with the flow,” moving watercolor across the page to create gorgeous paintings. It covers everything from selecting the best papers, paints and brushes, to achieving intense color passages, the illusion of depth and lively shadows.
Painting Watercolor Flowers: Joyce Faulknor and Guy Magallanes have their own proven approaches and techniques for working in watercolor. Guy usually paints light to dark, glazing one color on her palette and right on the paper. In this workshop, Joyce and Guy present their unique points of view on how to paint water lilies in watercolor, as they each complete a finished painting step by step, giving you twice as many techniques for painting your own vibrant flowers!
