Learn to paint with watercolors by practicing techniques directly in this instructional sketchbook. Through 100 different experiments, author and artist Sasha Prood teaches traditional techniques like wet-on-dry, wet-on-wet, and flat washes, and also encourages you to play with the paint through colorful ombrés, unique bloom textures, and added elements like salt and sponging.
Each experiment is accompanied by Prood’s beautifully painted examples and space to practice your skills on the thick pages of the sketchbook. Prood makes watercolors accessible by setting you up to paint a series of practice swatches before attempting to make final art and she emphasizes experimentation with color and technique so that you can learn to enjoy and embrace all the unique qualities of watercolor.
