If you have ever wished that you could take a fabulous watercolor painting class from a master teacher as well as an accomplished artist, then this book is for you. Included are sections on materials, how to paint, what to paint, color, drawing, value, philosophy, and selling. Ted has taught university art classes for over 20 years. He teaches not just the mechanics and fundamentals of painting, although of course he does teach that, but also the essence and mystery of art. He investigates questions such as what is talent, why do we revere the arts so much that we build museums to display them, and when can you call yourself an artist? What is the difference between illustrators and artists? Do modern art and more traditional art have a common spirit? What does it take to create 1,000 paintings and what does that mean? If you have ever wondered how it feels to be an artist, to paint day after day, and to make a living in the arts, then this book is also for you. The book shares Ted's experiences as a painter, a teacher, and someone who has made a living from the arts. It includes a section showing the process of creating a painting from the idea to the completion, illustrating the different stages that occur in the painting. It includes information on how to sell artwork in galleries and other venues. As a teacher, Ted is especially skilled at helping people take their art to a deeper level, no matter what their initial level is. He assists people to become freer in their work, as well as to develop their own signature style. If you are feeling stuck in your art work, this book is for you. The second half of the book is devoted to a gallery of Ted's original paintings. His work has it's own recognizable style. One can see how he has personally put into practice that which he teaches. The paintings are both profound and whimsical, with a touch of humor here and there. The colors are rich and evocative. The subject matter is the ordinary stuff of our everyday lives, made to come more alive and magical by the colors and whimsy of the images.

"Because of their delicacy, watercolors are the most appropriate medium for capturing shades of light. Their transparency on blank paper lends sketches a unique luminosity. Unfortunately, the apparant difficulty of this art form intimidates many interested beginners. This book will show you that this fear is unfounded. Its easy to follow and richly illustrated instructional style offers basic tricks and practical advice for beginning watercolor painters. First, the exercises will teach you how to paint simple and accessible objects like flowers, fruit, and vases and, later, more complicated motifs like human figures and still lifes that require a greater command of the technique. The final part of the book presents classic examples from the most representative artists of this beautiful art form." -back cover.

Ross Bleckner, well-known for his large-scale canvases, has for years used watercolor as both a means and an end to painting. While Bleckner's works in oil deal primarily with remembrance and loss -- operating as memento mori to those lost in crisis -- the watercolors are far more iconic, symbolic of transformation and transcendence. The watercolors, instructive in understanding the larger oil on canvas pictures, also possess a photographic quality -- their brightness and shimmering surfaces attest to this artist's mastery and technique. These precious gems hold up on their own as a major part of Bleckner's oeuvre, yet they are relatively unknown. Beautifully reproduced, the sixty images selected here reveal the depth of Bleckner's talent and the degree to which this work relates to the artist's other paintings.
