Colour and light provide the key to creating paintings that are exciting and full of atmosphere, and Trevor Waugh focuses on these important aspects throughout the book. He sees a painting as a "room", for which a colour scheme needs to be chosen and in which the different elements must be carefully placed in relation to the light and the composition as a whole.

In "Winning with Watercolor," artist Trevor Waugh reveals the secrets of creating watercolors that are visually exciting and full of atmosphere. He identifies the five key skills and qualities that he believes you should look for in successful watercolor painting--large washes, transparency, wet-into-wet, soft darks and lights, and bold brushwork--and fully explains how these can be achieved. Above all, he stresses the vital role of color and light. With expert advice on techniques, sketching, color, and composition, the book also includes: useful checklists highlighting points to remember when painting specific subjects; a discussion of popular subjects, including landscapes, flowers, figures, and animals; step-by-step paintings of a variety of subjects; and a lavish selection of the author's own stunning work.About the Author:
