Painting Portraits and Figures in Watercolor by Mary Whyte Book

In PAINTING PORTRAITS AND FIGURES IN WATERCOLOR, author and renowned artist, Mary Whyte guides beginner and intermediate watercolorists through the entire painting process¿from selecting materials to fundamental techniques to working with models and exhibiting the finished painting. Filled with clear and concise language and in-depth step-by-step demonstrations, Whyte¿s book goes beyond the practical application of techniques, by teaching new artists to not only capture the model¿s physical likeness, but their unique personality and spirit, too. The book¿s earlier chapters focus on the basics, such as materials and tools, paint techniques, and drawing. Later chapters focus on color, posing the model, and how to achieve a personal point of view. Each chapter is built on the chapter preceding it. Chapters include: Brief History of Watercolor; Getting Started; Materials and Tools; Basic Techniques; Drawing, Composition, and Principles of Design; Value, Depth, and Form; Handling Edges; Color and Light; Backgrounds; and Becoming a Professional Artist. Richly illustrated throughout, PAINTING PORTRAITS AND FIGURES IN WATERCOLOR features Whyte¿s vibrant, emphatic watercolors and works by such masters of watercolor as Mary Cassatt, Thomas Eakins, Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent, and Georgia O¿Keeffe. PAINTING PORTRAITS AND FIGURES IN WATERCOLOR is the complete reference on portraiture and figure painting in watercolor.
