Rivers can be enchanting or exciting, but are always absorbing. They provide a myriad of painting opportunities and challenges for the artist. Focusing on watercolour - one of the most direct of mediums - this practical book explains how to paint a river and capture its life, light, movement, colour and interest. With over 200 colour images, Rob Dudley shares his methods, techniques and ideas to make this beautiful book a must-have for all landscape and en plein-air artists. It explains each stage of a painting; inspiration and focus, sketching and information gathering, planning and painting; and advises on how to paint water so that it captures the colour, shape and tone of light and reflections. It also looks at the various moods and characters of rivers - from the early streams and cascades through to strong, busy waterways and finally to the tidal estuary, where the river meets the sea, and instructs on how to bring a painting to life by including the features of a river - the boats, wildlife, people and bridges. Finished paintings, examples and step-by-step sequences are used throughout to support the detailed instruction. Beautifully illustrated with 233 colour images.

Überarbeitete Neuausgabe des bewährten Titels (8. Auflage: BA 2/86) in moderner Aufmachung mit durchgehend farbigen Abbildungen. Mit kurzer Einführung zu Malutensilien, Motivsuche, Grundtechniken und Perspektive sowie Tipps zur Auswahl und zum Auftrag von Farben. Unverändert blieben die 10 in SchrittfürSchrittFolgen auch für Anfänger nachvollziehbaren Beispiele für typische Landschaftsmotive. Vom inhaltlichen Standpunkt her brauchen ältere Auflagen nicht ausgetauscht zu werden, allerdings ist die neue Auflage natürlich deutlich attraktiver im Layout (keine SchwarzWeißFotos mehr), frischer in den Farben, darüber hinaus fest gebunden und nicht wesentlich teurer als 1985. Zu dieser beliebtesten Motivart in der populären Aquarellmalerei gibt es zahlreiche Konkurrenztitel (erwähnt seien nur die neueren: "Handbuch Landschaftsaquarelle", BA 8/02, vergriffen; "Aquarellmalerei Landschaften", BA 12/02; "Aquarellmalerei: Landschaften: Meisterkurs", BA 5/03); dieser bleibt dabei Grundbestandstitel.

Im Spiegel der Sprache

warum die Welt in anderen Sprachen anders aussieht

"Ich spreche Spanisch zu Gott, Italienisch zu den Frauen, Französisch zu den Männern und Deutsch zu meinem Pferd.' Die scherzhafte Vermutung Karls V., dass verschiedene Sprachen nicht in allen Situationen gleich gut zu gebrauchen sind, findet wohl auch heute noch breite Zustimmung. Doch ist sie aus sprachwissenschaftlicher Sicht haltbar? Sind alle Sprachen gleich komplex, oder ist Sprache ein Spiegel ihrer kulturellen Umgebung - sprechen 'primitive' Völker 'primitive' Sprachen? Und inwieweit sieht die Welt, wenn sie 'durch die Brille' einer anderen Sprache gesehen wird, anders aus? Das neue Buch des renommierten Linguisten Guy Deutscher ist eine sagenhafte Tour durch Länder, Zeiten und Sprachen. Auf seiner Reise zu den aktuellsten Ergebnissen der Sprachforschung geht Guy Deutscher mit Captain Cook auf Känguruh-Jagd, prüft mit William Gladstone die vermeintliche Farbblindheit der Griechen zur Zeit Homers und verfolgt Rudolf Virchow in Carl Hagenbecks Zoo auf dem Kurfürstendamm im Berlin des 19. Jahrhunderts. Mitreisende werden nicht nur mit einer glänzend unterhaltsamen Übersicht der Sprachforschung, mit humorvollen Highlights, unerwarteten Wendungen und klugen Antworten belohnt. Sie vermeiden auch einen Kardinalfehler, dem Philologen, Anthropologen und - wer hätte das gedacht - auch Naturwissenschaftler allzu lange aufgesessen sind: die Macht der Kultur zu unterschätzen." -- Publisher's website.
