Splash 14: Light & Color (Splash: The Best of Watercolor) Reviews
Some of the watercolors are less than exciting. In one case the artist says she is pleased that her painting looked like an oil!!! Thse of us who paint in watercolor do so because we love the brilliance and sparkle and the last thing we want is for it to look opaque. Nice book, but wait for the paperback.
I usually get every splash book and realized I forgot to get last year's version. I ordered one for me and one for a gift, then I had the beautiful covers laminated, so they'd be pristine for years to come. I get the book because I love to read the artists' comments about why, how or when they went about the painting. it provides insight on materials used and subject matter, and in the back are web sites for more extensive research on a certain artist. thanks amazon and rachel rubin wolf!
Great, absolutely great watercolor book. However the ideas in the book can be translated into both oils and acrylics. This is one of the best Splash books I have.
I love the Splash books. They provide great examples of what can be done with watercolor. I pull them out periodically to review when I need some guidance on how to do something. I'm working on gathering the whole set, 1-14. In the case of Splash 14, one of my instructors has two entries so I had to have it!
I love collecting these books

Great series of books. I have them all and love the art of other artists.
I did not care for the paintings that were chosen and there was no mention of technique. the book was a
