I first discovered Rainey’s loose, floral watercolor style through social media. I’m always on the lookout for a good how-to watercolor book and hers is a favorite. You start off learning the materials and the medium and then move into color theory, value pigmentation, shapes, strokes and techniques such as wet on wet. A great book for a beginner or intermediate artist!
A contemporary paint-every-day watercolor guide that explores foundational strokes and patterns and then builds new skills upon the foundations over the course of 30 days to create finished pieces.
This beautifully illustrated and inspiring guided watercolor-a-day book is perfect for beginning watercolor artists, artists who want to improve their watercolor skills, and visual creatives. From strokes to shapes, this book covers the basics and helps painters gain confidence in themselves along with inspiration to develop their own style over the course of 30 days. Featuring colorful contemporary art from Mon Voir design agency founder and Instagram trendsetter Jenna Rainey, this book's fresh perspective paints watercolor in a whole new light.
