Baker & Taylor
A tutorial for the beginning watercolorist seeks to demystify the art of watercolor painting and provide useful and practical information on everything from materials and setting up a workstation, to developing the senses of perspective, composition, and design.

Book News
Painter and art teacher Horowitz presents a series of exercises for novice watercolor painters. Early chapters cover watercolor materials, basic techniques, and other fundamentals while subsequent units are devoted to particular subjects (water, flowers, winter landscape, etc.). Each exercise begins with reference photos, followed by composition and color tips for completing the painting. Student galleries illustrate how wide-ranging interpretations of the same subject can be. The hardbound volume features a spiral binding that allows the pages to lay flat on a table or easel.
