About the book

A guide that shows painters, drawers, doodlers and urban sketchers how to bring their drawings to life with colourful, bold, yet accessible painting methods. Watercolour sketching is a rapidly emerging technique that enlivens sketches done in pen or pencil with the expressive washes, glazes, and luminous hues of watercolour. This lushly illustrated resource teaches artists on the go how to sketch with watercolour, rendering subjects efficiently and without inhibitions. Readers are guided through all aspects of the medium, from fundamental techniques including wet-on-wet, glazing, and washes; materials and supplies; and little known tips and tricks for getting the most out of watercolour (for example, just sprinkling a little salt on your painting creates a texture that's impossible to achieve with a brush). A strong focus on colour theory provides a solid foundation for enhancing drawings with vibrant hues.

"If you like urban bustle and disorganisation... you'll love the book. It's American, brash and makes no concessions to sensitivity, happily accosting you and telling you how it is" - The Artist

Felix Scheinberger Biography

Felix Scheinberger was born on 14 October 1969 in Frankfurt am Main (Germany). The entrance exam for the FH für Gestaltung, Hamburg (University of Applied Sciences, Hamburg, Germany) would be his ticket to an education. There he studied illustration, which then seamlessly resulted in self-employment. In the past ten years, he has illustrated more than fifty books, worked for prestigious newspapers and collected various prizes and awards. He has also taught in Mainz, Hamburg, Münster (Germany) and Jerusalem (Israel). His previous publications have influenced design agencies to rediscover hand-rendered drawing as well as pencil and watercolours. Felix Scheinberger now lives in Berlin and is a professor of illustration at the FH Münster (University of Applied Arts, Münster, Germany). ... Read full biography
