Dana's debut had strong pre-sales and this follow-up provides new no-sketch templates to help novice artists practice the primary techniques of watercolor with a beautiful ocean theme. Learning to watercolor is as easy as it is beautiful. Watercolor With Me In the Ocean offers 50 stunning designs in a series of introductory lessons with marine themes to help the novice artist destress while becoming a competent and confident painter. Dana Fox's popular YouTube series, Paint with Me, has proven her instruction both accessible and appealing, and in this book, she provides light sketches so that new painters can focus solely on watercolor techniques. This no-sketch approach allows readers to create polished works of art in a few easy steps. Through the chapters, Dana guides readers through the three major watercolor techniques: wet on dry, wet on wet and ink and wash. The ocean theme makes for a tranquil practice with marine life subjects like the octopus, jellyfish or sea turtles as well as more fanciful creatures like mermaids. This book is printed on high-quality art paper making it a perfect gift book or polished practice pad. This book includes 50 projects.
