Water tumbling over rocks. Dazzling reflections in glass or metal. The textures of these elements make watercolour paintings come alive. They make the viewers feel as if they could "step right into" the scenes an artist has created. Here, expert Cathy Johnson shows them how to create these textures without creating a muddy mess. In her practical, step-by-step manner, she shows how to create 83 different textures, including fruits and vegetables, hair, glass, metal, fabric, flowers, fur, skin and various natural textures. Each of these textures is demonstrated by Johnson's beautiful watercolour sketches, all with hints and tips to illustrate individual techniques. Artists can apply these techniques to their own work to create fabulous watercolour paintings that almost seem to "breathe." ]
