Inhaltsangabe: Reading this book is like taking one of Karlyn's workshops. She combines a sense of spontaneity with grounded techniques and guides the reader on a journey as an artist. Readers are encouraged to have fun by developing a sense of playfulness in their paintings while pursing the ultimate goal of finding freedom in their own, personal style. In a series of beautifully illustrated, hands-on demonstrations, Karlyn shows readers how to experience the excitement and satisfaction of creating a successful watercolor painting. She demonstrates ways to achieve a balance between spontaneity and control and encourages readers to find the path between their heart and their hands. When you truly become immersed in watercolor and find the techniques that work for you, you are on your way to discovering your own fun and free style.
Rezension: Veteran teacher Karlyn Holman's passion is watercolor, and in Watercolor Fun and Free she distills technical information into concepts and demonstrations that students can easily grasp. Based upon her international workshops, the book is organized around abstraction, flowers, and landscapes. The sheer variety of Holman's illustrations and the far-reaching range of her technique compensate for the book's loose overall structure. Throughout, Holman stresses the need to balance a Zen-like spontaneity ("Let the paint find the essence of what you want to express") with experienced control ("Study master oriental paintings and you will begin to appreciate the importance of visual rest areas"). This theme finds life in her own work, as in the exuberant, lush colors of her flowers gaining balance by the subtlety of her compositions. The mysterious, hushed effects she achieves with lights and whites in winter landscapes are particularly fascinating. This delightful book will challenge the experienced watercolorist with fresh insight into process and inspire the novice to discover new expression in paint. --Mary Ribesky
