Water-soluble colored pencils are portable, versatile and much more forgiving than traditional watercolors, yet many artists have only just begun to tap into this medium's creative potential. This book explores the amazing possibilities of watercolor pencils, providing artists with basic instruction for taking full advantage of them in their artwork. Beginning with an overview of necessary materials and basic techniques, artists will learn from simple mini demos how to mix colors, create washes, layer colors and more. Artists will then see how these painting techniques are employed to capture a variety of popular subjects, including landscapes, flowers, animals, water, people, skies, trees, bridges and buildings. the last chapter of the book demonstrates how to mix watercolor pencils with other mediums to create all kinds of new and interesting effects. Cathy Johnson is the author of five North Light books, including Creating Textures in Watercolor and Watercolor Tricks and Techniques. She has also authored Sierra Club Guide to Sketching Nature and Sierra Club Guide to Painting Nature. She lives in Excelsior Springs, Missouri.
