Watercolor Painting With Passion!Book - 2001
Passion is one of the most important elements in a masterful work of art. Without it, a painting is a lifeless collection of composition and technique.

Detailed demonstrations show how to; Create passion through a perfect marriage of tonai values; Inject mystery and drama by manipulating shadows; Use color to express powerful emotion; Simplify a scene to better express the artist's feelings for the subject; Set a mood, create rhythm, and ultimately achieve perfect unity Through it all, artists will take their passion for painting - and personal satisfaction from their work - to a higher plateau.
