Painting with Watercolor Ink and Pen by Claudia Nice

posted in: Reviews | 0

Painting with Watercolor, Ink and Pen by Claudia Nice is the best watercolor book out there.  This is her 221 tome with every technique she uses.  Through the years she has added another 13 books to her name, but this is the one to start with.  This is the watercolor bible.

10 out of 10 stars.

Chapter 1: Materials

Chapter 2: Basic Texturizing Techniques

Chapter 3: The Look of Transparency

Chapter 4: Metallic Impressions

Chapter 5: Earth and Stone Textures

Chapter 6: Skies and Weather

Chapter 7: Woodgrain Patterns

Chapter 8: Trees and Forests

Chapter 9: Tide Pools and Tropical Reefs

Chapter 10: Fields of Flowers

Chapter 11: Desert Drylands

Chapter 12: Ponds, Swamps, and Marshes

Chapter 13: Mountains, Crags, and Crevices

Chapter 14: Still Life Strategies

From the above Table of Contents you can see that she literally includes everything in this book.  Over the years, she’s released books that specifically address water, flowers, gardens, trees, people, animals, and buildings.  But really this is the only book you need.

10 out of 10 stars.  Still my favorite watercolor book.  It has it all.
