It's the interplay between water and paint that makes this medium so exciting. It's no wonder, then, that wet-into-wet is one of the most popular methods for painting in watercolor. This unique book/DVD workshop shows you how to "go with the flow," moving watercolor across the page to create gorgeous paintings.

Covers everything from selecting the best papers, paints and brushes, to achieving intense color passages, the illusion of depth and lively shadows. 10 exercises and 15 step-by-step demonstrations illustrate important lessons on shapes, complementary colors, masking fluid, glazing and more. Techniques are illustrated with Birgit O'Connor's bold and beautiful flowers, but are applicable to any subject. DVD shows key techniques in action - blending colors, creating hard and soft edges, and painting water drops - as well as troubleshooting common problems with washes. Watercolor has a reputation for being unpredictable. But the secret to success, as you'll learn here, is using the right amount of water, which lets you have more control ... and fun!
