An experienced painter reviews the basic concepts of watercolor painting and composition, and introduces techniques for painting objects and scenes with transparency, translucence, luminosity, and light reflection. Color photographs of a work in progress illustrate each step for replicating glass, silk, interior lights, candlelight, sunlight, and water distortions. Seven of the 21 demonstrations use oil paints.
