Leslie Frontz
The Watercolor Course You’ve Always Wanted
Publisher: Watson-Guptill

Leslie Frontz is the author of a NEW comprehensive and practical guide to watercolor painting that provides the answers to students’ two most common questions: What am I doing wrong, and how do I decide what to do instead?

This straightforward handbook offers a fresh approach to watercolor mastery that bridges the gap between theory and practice. Through thoughtful discussion and expert instruction, Leslie Frontz shows readers how to paint successfully in watercolor. Beginning with how to look at a subject with an artist's eye, Frontz then establishes how to build on this skill by making timely decisions throughout the creative process. Examples of paintings by other professional and student artists provide thought-provoking ideas for working in watercolor.

The Watercolor Course You’ve Always Wanted features eighteen step-by-step demonstrations. Topics include choosing art supplies that work, how to approach a subject, simplifying color, and working with a brush. The author completes the course with tips to help readers find their own way in watercolor. The book is available online and wherever art books are sold.
