Summary "Like moths to a flame, watercolor artists are forever fascinated, sometimes obsessed, and often frustrated by their quest to capture the elusive qualities of light. Splash 19 showcases 125+ shining successes, fresh out of the studios of today's top artists. These artists revel in the possibilities of light, reflection, refraction, and shadows. Their paintings celebrate the magic that happens when light dances across the landscape, bounces around a still life, or pierces a rainy city night. From the riot of reflections on water, to a cat basking in the sun, to the inner glow of innocence in a child's expression...light brings this work to life. Alongside each painting, commentary from the artist offers firsthand insight into how they use light to create mood, tell a story, or evoke a sense of time and place"--Book jacket flap.
