Published by Watson-Guptill
Join renowned artist Stephen Quiller on a journey of art discovery and exploration. This book is an in-depth look at all the water media paints available to today’s artists. Part One looks at watercolors, with illustrations of the visual characteristics of the mineral (sedimentary) and transparent (staining) and their effects with different paper surfaces. Part Two focuses on acrylics, gouache, and casein and then using these media in combination. In Part Three, Quiller shares his secrets for the most difficult aspect of painting: composition, seeing abstractly, and developing a personal style and vision. Packed with Quiller’s thoughts and ideas on painting philosophy, the meditative and spiritual aspects of art, and personal observations on painting throughout his career, this is an inspiring guide to living a creative life and creating art. This book also has excerpts from Quiller's journals from the past twenty years.
