In this guide, author and popular tutor Terry Harrison shares a wealth of tips and techniques for painting snow in watercolour. Suitable for artists of all abilities, Terry shows you how to capture the beauty of snow-covered landscapes using easy techniques. The book begins with guidance on colour mixes and brushes for achieving different effects, and moves on to step-by-step demonstrations of painting snow-laden trees, frozen streams, wintry skies, falling snow, and the warm glow of a low winter sun. He provides valuable tips on using photographs for reference, and turning a summer landscape into a snow-covered one. There's also a delightful section on how to create a traditional Christmas scene, and how to make a Christmas card. With six further projects and numerous examples of Terry's beautiful artwork, this book is a truly indispensable guide for anyone wishing to paint snow scenes in watercolour.|

Painting Watercolour Snow Scenes the Easy Way
(c) Copyright Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
Roughly half of artist Harrison's (Painting Water in Watercolour) guide is devoted to materials, tools, and basic techniques. The other half consists of six simple step-by-step projects for creating winter scene watercolor paintings. Techniques demonstrated are specific to portraying winter landscapes, such as using wet on wet to suggest a wintry glow, how the use of masking fluid mimics a dusting of snow, and using a dry brush to depict animal tracks. Snowcapped mountains, Christmas scenes, birch forests, changing seasons, and other popular winter subjects are featured. VERDICT Readers of beginning or intermediate artistic skill level, especially those with previous painting experience, are the ideal audience for this guide. Â© Copyright 2017.
