A watercolor is the medium or the resulting artwork in which the paints are made of pigments suspended in a water-soluble vehicle. The traditional and most common support for watercolor paintings is paper; other supports include papyrus, bark papers, plastics, vellum or leather, fabric, wood, and canvas. Watercolors are usually transparent, and appear luminous because the pigments are laid down in a relatively pure form with few fillers obscuring the pigment colors.

There’s no doubt, watercolors are probably the most difficult skill for any artist to learn. Frankly, watercolor painting is something you just can’t fake. I remember when I was in third grade when I failed in an art class since I don’t know how to use the water color!  However, the big problem is most books on the subject are filled with lots of beautiful pictures but not enough step-by-step instruction to even get you started.

Inside this magnificent work you’ll get step-by-step instruction on how to creating vibrant and fresh watercolor paintings.
