Details: Product Description A progressive, informative art course for beginner watercolorists, revealing the secrets and science behind watercolor. Many watercolor artists are disappointed with the results of their endeavors, because their attempts at painting do not always turn out as intended. However, the majority of mistakes are caused by the misuse of paint rather than artistic inability. Understanding the medium and how to use it will turn failure into success, and discovering the truth about how to use watercolors is exciting, liberating and enormously rewarding. The Watercolour Enigma is based on a practical course by artist Stephen Coates, and is designed to take the student through a process of learning rarely seen in other practical art books. By examining the basic science of watercolour - the properties of water and color pigment, and through a series of practical, straightforward, step-by-step painting exercises, budding painters will leave Stephen's book not only with a mine of watercolor knowledge, but also will step away with a selection of stunning paintings they will be proud to have painted. Fulfil your dream and learn to paint like a true, watercolour expert. About the Author Stephen Coates was born in Sheffield in 1960. Son of a draughtsman, he was introduced to drawing at a very young age. He excelled in art at school but chose a career in retail, working first in the music industry for 16 years followed by another 16 years running his own catering business. Largely self-taught, Stephen specialised in watercolours and over a period of twenty years, developed his own style and unique brand of teaching in his spare time. In 2011, he traded his sandwich business for a career in art and teaching. He became a full-time professional freelance artist and set up his own studio in Sheffield with a purpose-designed teaching facility. He runs courses, workshops and hosts his own amateur art groups. He also demonstrates his skills and shares his expertise at art society meetings all over England. Stephen's successful teaching business inspired him to write and compile a watercolour teaching manual. He wanted to bring the excitement of his live teaching into the pages of a book so that students could truly experience the learning process in the comfort of their own homes. Stephen exhibits at a variety of art shows and loves to share his experiences with people.
