Splash 9; the best of watercolor, watercolor secrets.

Ed. by Rachel Rubin Wolf.

North Light Books


143 pages




For artists and art lovers, Wolf, a writer, editor, and artist, assembles a collection--the ninth volume in the series--of the work of about 100 watercolor artists along with their own commentary on each piece: tips, descriptions of their technique, influences, and why they painted that particular subject. The paintings, presented in color, are of street scenes; focus on light and color or texture and detail; experiment or play with point of view, mood, and atmosphere; or feature portraits and landscapes. Quotes from many of the artists about why they paint are integrated throughout. The book measures 9.5x12.375".
