Gary Spetz's Painting Wild Places! With Watercolors

With the premise of "so much to paint, so little time," artist Gary Spetz travels to six scenic locations throughout the United States -from Florida's Cabbage Key to Yellowstone National Park - to choose his subject matter. Each scene presents new painting challenges, providing Spetz with new opportunities to share his innovative painting methods. Throughout GARY SPETZ'S PAINTING WILD PLACES! WITH WATERCOLORS, Spetz encourages viewers to undertake more complex paintings. And while challenging, each lesson is carefully designed to be "user-friendly" with Spetz's easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions.
