In this bold, breakthrough approach to watercolor, renowned artist Nita Engle shows readers how to combine spontaneity and control to produce lively, luminescent paintings of realistic subjects. According to Engle, when it comes to working in watercolor, "there is no greater freedom than play." To that end, she begins the book with action-filled warm-up exercises that show us how to play with paint freely, in an unstructured way--without rules or drawings--until we become totally comfortable exploring the medium.

Beautiful paintings and useful discussion of the philosophy behind her paintings. Some of her techniques seem gimmicky, but she gets fine products using them. Very useful information.
