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.
A placid, reflective northwoods lake scene from Minnesota's "canoer's heaven": the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. In a step-by-step demonstration, Gary takes the viewer half way through the painting process: from a drawing on watercolor paper through the creation of the painting's base foundation of colors and values.
