Incredible Light and Texture in Watercolor DVD

By James Toogood

Format: DVD

SKU# 00836

Video DVD

A fascinating companion piece to his book of the same title, watch as John layers wash after wash, gradually building rich texture and luminous light through two painting demonstrations: a gorgeous waterscape looking out on a crystal-clear bay, and a scene from the town of St. Georges in Bermuda, known for its narrow, provocative lanes and bright, sparkling sunlight.

Along the way, James shares favorite tricks—like adding a little lemon yellow to give a white sunlit wall a bit of sparkle, using the slightest touches of body color to intensify the impression of light, and how lively darks can be the true key to making your light really shine.

To further illustrate how these straightforward techniques can be used, James shares a selection of some of his favorite paintings and discusses how he charged them with texture and light.
