Description

Painting Mood & Atmosphere in Watercolour

by Barry Herniman

'I really cannot commend this book enough; my paintings have now been infused with that something extra. There are so many techniques and useful information in this book I feel as if I have had personal tuition from the artist. Highly recommended!' Review of the previous edition by minigallery.co.uk

Learn how to invest your watercolour landscapes with character and ambience that will lift them out of the everyday into something extraordinary.

Barry Herniman shows the reader how to capture the essence of a scene, and to inject that extra something: mood and atmosphere. This 'extra something' is what many watercolour artists seek, and it is clearly explained and beautifully demonstrated in this practical and enthralling guide to painting a variety of landscapes.

This beautiful book brings Barry Herniman's stunning artwork to the fore with a sumptuous redesign, complete with new inspirational artworks and expanded sections on colour mixing and techniques.

Paint magazine

This isn't a new book (it first appeared in 2004), but it's always been one of the best and this revised edition contains much re-origination as well as new material that brings it bang up to date. I'm always conflicted about recommending expanded re-issues. Should I tell you it's definitely worth buying a book you perhaps already have, which it often is; or should I suggest that, if you're happy with what you've got, your next purchase should be something new? In the end, all I can do is tell you what I like and leave the decision to you.

Mood and atmosphere are those indefinable qualities that make a painting sing and give the viewer a sense of what it was like to be there when the scene was painted. "Each of us has our own perfect time of day, a favourite season or certain weather conditions that set our senses alight," says Barry. "When these elements prevail, that is the time to get painting."

That takes care of the creative aspects: it's about being enthused yourself so you can put your feelings into your work, But there are practical considerations as well. Colour, light and composition all play a part and Barry explains how to use these elements to achieve the results you want. His subjects include landscapes, buildings, skies and water and his techniques involve balancing the elements of composition, the use of perspective and contrasting colour and the careful placing of highlights.

This particular reissue makes for an exciting and inspirational read.
