Now completely revised in an updated, four-colour edition, this is a reference for the serious artist working in transparent watercolour, gouache, casein, acrylic, and mixed media. Reviewing basic methods and exploring a variety of techniques, artist Edward Betts invites painters who have reached a certain level of technical expertise to expand their range of pictorial possibilities. Through a series of progressive chapters, Betts analyses sketching strategies (both on-location and in the studio), sources for pictorial images (including photographs, memory, reading, and studio experimentation), and the textures and effects obtainable in each of the watermedia. Collage, mixed-media, and brushless methods are considered as tools for gaining a deeper understanding of the formal possibilities of subject matter. Betts then assesses the complex relationships between nature and abstraction, for descriptive realism to pure design. Finally, readers are encouraged to evaluate their art critically and appraise their creative strengths and weaknesses.
