From Builders:


This is the top seller in a subject that we thought, with
the takeover of digital techniques, was forever gone from the
architecture/design world...that of watercolor sketching. Everyone, from old
hands to newbies seem to be attracted to its beautiful - simple - approach.


From the Author:


This book has two goals: to teach you watercolor
techniques and to tell you something about color. However, it does not aim to
explain, for example, how you can paint a certain sky in four steps. I seriously
doubt whether readers learn more from such instruction books than they do by
actually painting that sky. What if the sky should suddenly cloud over? Instead,
this book wishes to show you the basic principles of watercolor paints, so you
can flexibly apply them to whatever you want to achieve.

I imagine it’s a little like learning chords on a guitar. For me, it seems
important that you learn the finger-ings, but what song you play is up to you.
And don’t worry, everything that we need to know about color can be learned with
a simple box of paints.

Whether watercolor painting is sophisticated and legitimate or not isn’t the
point. Watercolor can go anywhere. It is an autonomous, free, and creative
medium. It makes the world our studio.
