Often referred to as the "gateway art," watercolor is one of the most accessible and popular art mediums to explore. With Watercolor Workshop, author and artist Sasha Prood brings a sense of freedom and fun to watercolor instruction, while still covering all the skills you need to get started. Through 100 different experiments, Sasha teaches you traditional techniques like wet-on-dry, wet-on-wet, and flat washes, and also encourages you to play with the paint through colorful ombres, unique bloom textures, and added elements like salt and sponging. The goal of the sketchbook is to explore all of the fantastic ways you can use watercolors while gradually building confidence in the medium. Each experiment is accompanied by beautifully painted examples and space to practice your skills directly in the sketchbook. Printed on thick, uncoated paper, with a lie-flat binding, Watercolor Workshop is the ultimate guide to contemporary watercolor techniques.
