Learn from the Very Best in Modern Watercolour
Curated by artist and lecturer Helen Birch, Acquerelli is a collection of around 200 works from today’s top watercolour artists, each one presented along with useful information and practical tips on a wide range of topics such as tone, perspective, colour, and much more besides. Readers and aspiring artists will be able to discover the various ways in which similar subjects and styles are executed by different artists, while also being inspired to use the tips in the book as a way of building on their existing skills.
Offering a bold, refreshing change from other run-of-the-mill art books, Acquerelli adopts the unique approach of accessing practical information via the images, focusing on the way subjects can be treated using a whole range of different watercolour techniques, rather than looking at how to master one single style. This gives the reader a much wider skill set—allowing them to capture or create the essence of any image in a variety of different ways.
Helen Birch is an art lecturer and blogger based in the UK. She is the author of the highly popular blog drawdrawdraw and her books include Freehand: sketching tips and tricks, Just add watercolour, and Drawn from life published by #logosedizioni with the title Disegno dal Vero.
