Kristy Rice’s joy-focused approach to watercolour art has won the hearts of fans worldwide. Here she teaches the basics of painting, infusing the learning process with wit, wisdom, and laughter.
Rice shows all levels of painters how to make “art for joy’s sake.” She offers her quirky, joy-focused guidance on preparation, including the materials you really need (and don’t need), and walks you through “Basics and Details.” “Five Exercises” enhances your ways of brush handling, muscle memory, colour mixing, and texture, and “20 Leaves” helps you put them all together. “Five Techniques” lets you experience flowers, fruits, veggies, landscapes, and patterns.
And the projects—or as Kristy calls it, the “Ready to Fly” list—include Leaves and Greens; Take a Walk Pattern; Textile Pattern; Gem and Rock Pattern; Imaginary Landscape; Bouquet; and Watercolour Fragments.
