Judy's breakthrough method, while proven highly effective, is based simply on using the right materials in the right manner. She's taught it with great success in her five-day workshop. Inspired by her students' enthusiasm, this book demonstrates her techniques. The book concludes with a step-by-step demonstration illustrating the planning, colors, techniques and value statements Judy uses to create strong and brilliant watercolor paintings. While Building Brilliant Watercolors will benefit any watercolor artist who wants to make the most of their medium's jewel-like colors, it is a true treasure for those who also want to paint in a realistic style.
Treman is a highly accomplished watercolorist, working in a large-format, realistic style. Here, she concentrates on color theory and the unique ability of watercolor to achieve a transparent brilliance that lends work a heightened sense of reality. Unique to this volume is Treman's use of what she terms "disappearing purple." To avoid muddy colors, the bane of the medium, she paints in shadows as her first step, the opposite of the accepted method. She finds that shades of purple blend and disappear, leaving vivid, natural colors. (Old Masters, she contends, similarly used sepia as an underpainting in oils.) Limited mainly to floral still lifes, this should be added only after broader works on the same topic, like Rachel Rubin Wolf's Splash 4: The Splendor of Light (LJ 11/15/96).
