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.
High surf and a sandy beach provide a lovely tropical backdrop to Kauai's Bali Hai ridge. In a step-by-step demonstration, Gary takes us halfway through painting the scene, from drawing on watercolor paper through creating the painting's foundation colors and values.
