Paint Luxurious Textures in Watercolor


by Jennifer Sheffer

Texture is one of the most crucial elements of any successful painting—and now, with Paint Luxurious Textures in Watercolor, readers can discover the secrets of this powerful technique. This book features:

  • An overview of texture techniques, including glazing, underpainting, and masking
  • 15 close-up, step-by-step demonstrations of how to create texture for a variety of subjects, including lace, embroidered silk, silver teapots, and cats
  • Two longer demonstrations that show readers how to combine all of the texture techniques discussed throughout to create a sophisticated, multi-layered painting

    Readers will learn how to capture rich textures so realistic, their paintings will seem to jump off the canvas.

    Jennifer Sheffer is self-taught and has been paint­ing and drawing since she was a little girl. Her watercolor paintings have been included in a number of important exhibitions, as well as outdoor art shows along the East coast. She has received awards in shows organized by local and national art associations.
