Présentation de l'éditeur

Silken strands of hair. Water tumbling over rocks. Dazzling reflections in glass or metal. The textures of these elements make watercolour paintings come alive.

They make the viewers feel as if they could "step right into" the scenes an artist has created. Here, expert Cathy Johnson shows them how to create these textures without creating a muddy mess. In her practical, step-by-step manner, she shows how to create 83 different textures, including fruits and vegetables, hair, glass, metal, fabric, flowers, fur, skin and various natural textures.

Each of these textures is demonstrated by Johnson's beautiful watercolour sketches, all with hints and tips to illustrate individual techniques. Artists can apply these techniques to their own work to create fabulous watercolour paintings that almost seem to "breathe." --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

HASH(0x9084fcf0) étoiles sur 5 Simply Wonderful 21 février 2000
Par Daena Ortego - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This is a great book for those starting out with watercolors. The format makes everything very simple and gives illustrated step-by-step directions that are simple to follow and easy to elaborate on using your own creativity! I love this book because the author doesn't talk down to the reader, but explains everything in a matter-of-fact way that's easy for beginners and refreshing for the more advanced. Sparse on words and full of pictures/illustrations, I'd highly recommend this book for anyone looking to improve their grasp of watercolor painting.

HASH(0x9084fd44) étoiles sur 5 Good tips for textures 12 avril 2003
Par J Johnson - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book will not go into detail of what materials you need to paint in watercolor, nor will it teach you how to compose a picture or prepare you for creating masterpieces.
This book will teach you simple tips and tricks to creating different textures such as a rock surface or the bark of a tree. If one is not interested in painting mother nature, the book also demonstrates ways to create brick walls, animal fur, and even human skin.
The book depends on pictures to demonstrate its lessons but also provides some text to explain the lesson to the reader. All the images are in color and most lessons are in step-by-step format. I gave this book four stars instead of five because I feel it could have provided a bit more information of other textures. However, I did learn a great deal from its lessons and therefore cannot complain.
All in all, this book is a great asset to anyone who is attempting to learn how to paint textures in watercolor. The lessons it provides are most useful to amateurs but may prove useful to intermediate artists as well.

HASH(0x90855198) étoiles sur 5 Helpful problem-solver 20 septembre 2006
Par Nicole N. Pellegrini - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This book is not so much a "how-to" or beginner's guide as it is a useful problem-solver for various texture challenges a watercolor artist may face. From painting fruit to fur, metal to dirt, fields of grass to whitewater rapids, the author presents many full-color, illustrated examples and notes on how to proceed. After a few pages of basic paper and application notes, the book goes right into texturing, sometimes with step-by-step illustrations, other times with notes provided on a finished painting.

What I found most useful out of all of these pages was the idea of how to suggest texture without overdoing detail, a common problem in all painting mediums but particularly deadly in watercolor where a certain degree of spontaniety should be embraced. Planning and layering of colors is illustrated as well as how to use splatter, wash, and other unpredicable techniques effectively.

This book will not lead you step-by-step to complete paintings, but can be of tremendous help when dealing with complicated objects and images and trying to find simple ways to approach them. I would definitely consider it an invaluable reference book for most watercolor artists, as you will surely find something in these pages you can apply to your own work and style.

HASH(0x90855564) étoiles sur 5 One of my most prized technique books 5 juin 2006
Par Sun'n'Fun - Publié sur
Format: Broché
When Ms. Johnson called this a book of textures, she wasn't kidding. She doesn't fool around with page after page of the oft-repeated list of materials, etc., but gets right down to textures.

Watercolour is the painting medium I spend most of my time in. In general I don't use how-to watercolour books because I can figure it out on my own, and frankly, I don't want to do it someone else's way...but I've found this is a good resource in considering new solutions to make things pop.

I think Ms. Johnson's completed paintings are the best parts of the book. Although I appreciate seeing her "sketchbook" of textures complete with written instructions how to create them, seeing how they are incorporated in an actual painting brings them to life.

I am relatively new to watercolor and found this book to be enormously helpful in being able to recreate what appear to be difficult textures. She makes it seem so easy! Thank you for this instruction book that will help perfect any painting.
