Painting Light & Shade shows how the transparency of watercolor makes it the perfect medium for capturing the fleeting nature of light. Inside you'll find: step-by-step demonstrations that show you how to add dimension and energy to your work, and how to use light and shade to make your watercolors jump off the page; mini-demonstrations which explain specific techniques for capturing allusive or aramark areas of high and shade; and paintings by professional artists, each accompanied by a tonal sketch that shows you how to see and interpret tonal values, enabling you to incorporate them into your own paintings."--Jacket
