The beauty of a watercolor painting lies in its diaphanous layers, delicate strokes, and luminous washes. However, the very features that define the beauty of the medium can make it difficult to master. This complete guide to understanding the relationships between color, value, wetness, and composition unravels the mysteries of watercolor to help your practice evolve. Experienced teacher and acclaimed artist Tom Hoffmann offers a unique, inquiry-based approach that shows you how to translate any subject into the language of watercolor.

Hoffmann’s thorough explanations and step-by-step demonstrations delineate the process of composing a painting in watercolor, while art from more than thirty-five past and present masters, including John Singer Sargent, Ogden Pleissner, George Post, Emil Kosa, Jr., Mary Whyte, Trevor Chamberlain, Lars Lerin, Torgeir Schjølberg, Piet Lap, Leslie Frontz, and Alvaro Castagnet serve to illustrate and inspire. Whether you’re a serious beginner or a seasoned practitioner, this book will guide you toward the all-important balance between restraint and risk-taking that every watercolorist seeks.

He teaches not just the mechanics and fundamentals of painting, although of course he does teach that, but also the essence and mystery of art. He investigates questions such as what is talent, why do we revere the arts so much that we build museums to display them, and when can you call yourself an artist? What is the difference between illustrators and artists? Do modern art and more traditional art have a common spirit? What does it take to create 1,000 paintings and what does that mean? If you have ever wondered how it feels to be an artist, to paint day after day, and to make a living in the arts, then this book is also for you. The book shares Ted's experiences as a painter, a teacher, and someone who has made a living from the arts. It includes a section showing the process of creating a painting from the idea to the completion, illustrating the different stages that occur in the painting. It includes information on how to sell artwork in galleries and other venues.

He assists people to become freer in their work, as well as to develop their own signature style. If you are feeling stuck in your art work, this book is for you. The second half of the book is devoted to a gallery of Ted's original paintings. His work has it's own recognizable style. One can see how he has personally put into practice that which he teaches. The paintings are both profound and whimsical, with a touch of humor here and there. The colors are rich and evocative. The subject matter is the ordinary stuff of our everyday lives, made to come more alive and magical by the colors and whimsy of the images.
