Présentation de l'éditeur

Watercolour is a classic medium, practiced by many but mastered by few. It reached a golden age from around 1750 to 1850, when artists such as Claude, Corot, Alexander Cozens, Cotman, Girtin, Cox, Constable, Turner and Ruskin created beautiful and complex images, but using surprising simply systems and processes. This accessible and clear workbook is both a practical guide and informative history - beginning with a 1-day course , the chapters cover technique, equipment and general theory, leading to twelve short sections examining the master watercolour artists. The authors also include following chapters on plein air, painting conservation, and a short overview of contemporary watercolour practice readers. Each chapter includes photographs and helpful examples of works in progress, methods and how-to demonstrations. Firmly designed for those who have not picked up a paintbrush since schooldays as well as more seasoned watercolour practitioners, Joyce Townsend and Tony Smibert have used their considerable expertise to develop a book with a breadth of content suitable for anyone who wants to become painter in watercolour, be a more assured and better artist, or simply gain new understanding of the great British watercolourists.

HASH(0xa0d192f4) étoiles sur 5 A peculiar watercolour book 24 novembre 2014
Par Parka - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The Tate Watercolour Manual is a watercolour instructional book quite unlike other in the sense that there's a lot of intellectual text going on. It's very academic style. I've several watercolour books and I really prefer the liveliness of the artists and authors in those.

The step-by-step tutorials are good with nice pictures and clear instructions. They are actually a series of tutorials designed to highlight specific techniques from greater watercolour masters in Europe, such as Claude Lorrain, Thomas Girtin, William Turner and others.

However, the techniques are often taught in isolation, meaning you may be taught how to create simple landscape, trees and clouds, but there's nothing about putting a piece of work together. Composition is a vague concept mentioned occasionally. Information on colour mixing is also almost non-existent, and the colours used for the tutorials consist just black, sepia demonstrations and the extremely toned down colour schemes of the example master paintings.

The subjects shown throughout are of landscapes with the exception of Turner's 1805 piece The Shipwreck. I don't feel that many of the pieces are very striking, or convey the message of watercolour as a vibrant and colourful medium. So for beginners, it's not that inspiring even though the tutorials are easy to follow along.

For beginners, I recommend getting more comprehensive books with complete lessons, such as The Watercolor Book by David Dewey, Watercolour for the Absolute Beginner, You Can Paint Vibrant Watercolors in Twelve Easy Lessons. And then you can move on to books that talk more about artistic expression.

For advanced artists, I suggest getting books dedicated to specific master artists instead.

An inspiring, beautiful, thoughtful book filled with great information about techniques and historic methods. Some of my favorite artists - who doesn't love to learn more about Turner's watercolor practices? Mr. Smibert's examples throughout are wonderful. An excellent companion to the earlier How to Paint like Turner.
