Award-winning illustrator Thacher Hurd and John Cassidy, cofounder of the renowned publisher Klutz, include witty instructions, charming illustrations - and plenty of room to do your own experimenting. You’ll learn the basics of colour blending, light and shadow, and perspective - but you’ll think you’re just having fun! Tell the perfectionist in you to take a break! Paint This Book encourages risk-taking, unrestrained creativity, and play - a true antidote to modern life. The first edition of Paint This Book! woke up the sleepy world of watercolour - and sold 600,000 copies! Now it’s back for a new generation. Thacher Hurd and John Cassidy teach watercolor painting like no one else. Landscapes can wait! First, you’ll learn the feel of the brush, the flow of the paint, and the freedom to express yourself: Splatter your paint at random, and then add details to create funny creatures. Try painting each letter in the alphabet with its own personality. Learn perspective by imagining one million soup cans. And go wild with painting prompts like 'fried eggs,' 'sunset on Venus,' and 'a knock-kneed flutterby'! Unlike any competing guide, Paint This Book! includes six bold colours of paint and an artist-quality brush. Plus, the 48 exercise pages are printed on sturdy watercolour paper. Just add water!
There’s no time like the present to learn something new. Paint This Book is a watercolour workbook for budding artists of all ages - complete with six paint colours, a brush, and sturdy watercolour paper.
