The most magical and compelling visual effects... in transparent watercolor on rough papers... are the ones where an artist utilizes soft blended colors with sharp edged brushwork.

This intrinsic and unique feature of transparent watercolor is what sets it apart from all other mediums. And once learned & mastered this set of skills allows an artist to utilize these features effectively in whatever subjects they choose.

Train with the best

These two unique types of watercolor brushwork...

•   creating soft blended colors by painting pigment into a wet surface... and

  1.   creating sharp-edged brushwork... on top of a dry surface...

are two distinctly different skills that can be rapidly upgraded. And that is precisely what David will work with you on in this Workshop.

By learning David’s clever and effective Soft & Sharp Painting Recipes... for both of these skills... you will greatly expand not only your ability to create more evocative moods but a much wider range of painting subjects as well.

Simple subjects in paintings...

with strong emotional impact...

have been a very common feature of transparent watercolor for hundreds of years.

And it is this amazing blending of skills in watercolor that allows a painter such a wide range of subjects to express themselves with.

This set of skills allows you to create truly magical visual effects and even a 3-dimensional illusion of depth that other artists... painting in acrylics & oils... struggle to achieve.

David Rankin is an established world reknown master of both landscape & wildlife subjects... with over 110 museum exhibitions to his credit.

But when you actually study his work... you see how these basic watercolor skills take on an amazing sophistication... no matter what the subject.

The very same Soft & Sharp Skills... found in David’s dramatic development of this Himalayan, high altitude... Bharal sheep...

Are the very same skills he used to create this dramatic winter scene.

These are Skills... not luck... nor are they happy accidents.

Transparent Watercolor is the single most superb artistic medium in the world.

But it requires training and practice.

And when you learn how to express your own artistic genius... using a full set of skills...

visual magic appears on the paper right in front of your own eyes.
