Oil & Acrylic: Waterscapes offers a unique approach to painting beautiful, scenic waterscapes.

Master the art of painting beautiful waterscapes in oil & acrylic.

As part of Walter Foster's core How to Draw & Paint series, Oil & Acrylic: Waterscapes offers a unique approach to subject matter that has not been previously covered in other Walter Foster landscape or seascape titles. Beginning with an introduction to the necessary tools and materials, this book also covers basic color theory and painting techniques, such as creating washes, scumbling, and painting wet-into-wet, among others. Following the comprehensive step-by-step instructions, artists learn to paint a variety of beautiful waterscapes, including a breathtaking waterfall, a serene pond, a stunning lake, a rushing river, and more--from start to finish. Along the way, professional tips and tricks from an expert artist help beginning-to-intermediate artists learn how to paint reflections, suggest mood and time of day, and render a variety of natural textures, such as stone, bark, foliage, and more. Oil & Acrylic: Waterscapes is the perfect book for any aspiring oil or acrylic landscape artist.
