An award-winning watercolorist and dedicated teacher explains and demonstrates his approach to painting and philosophy of art. 'The artist,' writes Webb, 'lives by his wits. Few pursuits are so totally dependent on an individual's internal resources. Our culture is dominated by mechanical and electronic triumphs. Against these depersonalizing forces, each artists fights for a personal life. Each is a solitary worker, making works which are addressed to the public, and receiving the benefits of identity.

Through an organized, disciplined text punctuated with revealing illustrations, the author guides the reader in the skills and thinking processes necessary for individual growth and artistic maturity. All aspects of painting in the illusive medium are covered. Given particular emphasis are: individual convictions, picture elements, painting methods, design, space, pattern, and esthetics. Also included are a number of step-by-step painting demonstrations.
