Inkleurboeke vir volwassenes is steeds baie gewild en daar is eindelose opsies om van te kies en keur. Inligting oor selfdoentegnieke wanneer dit by inkleur kom, is egter nie so volop beskikbaar nie. In hierdie boek deel inkleurkunstenaar, Monique Day-Wilde, alles van die kies van papier, potlode en ander inkleurmateriale, tot die teorie van kleur en kleurvermenging. Sy deel ook basiese en meer gevorderde tegnieke vir spesiale effekte, en wat jy dan met jou inkleurprente kan doen. Leer oor skadutegnieke met enkele of 'n verskeidenheid kleure, afskerming, meng- en vryftegnieke, skep van tekstuur, interessante maniere om groot agtergronde te vul, byvoeging van blinkgoed, stempels met bosseleervloeistof en selfs die gebruik van potloodskaafsels. Daar skuil soveel meer agter inkleurwerk as om net tussen die lyne te hou. Terwyl daar werklik geen regte of verkeerde manier is om in te kleur nie, sal hierdie boek jou help om inkleurwerk te omskep in 'n ervaring wat sal lei tot 'n kunswerk waarop jy kan trots wees - net vir jouself, of om mee te spog by ander.

This book takes you beyond the traditional boundaries of muted, delicate and translucent watercolour to create rich, vivid images, not only with watercolour on paper, but with other media and materials, while still retaining a watery feel and enhancing and expanding the possible textural effects. The projects showcase a mix of water media in familiar and unconventional, experimental ways. These include paint, ink, coloured pencils and fabric dye, with texture mediums forming part of the repertoire. While watercolour paper is used a fair amount, canvases, board and drafting paper or vellum are also incorporated. Some really simple, structured techniques have been covered, which can be followed step by step to achieve a very similar outcome and are suitable for crafty projects. Readers are also encouraged to use the more spontaneous and less controlled techniques (illustrated step by step), to further their own creative path, develop a sense of adventure, learn to take risks and work with their 'happy accidents'. There are lots of things one can do with unsuccessful work and the author has included ideas for incorporating discarded endeavours into new art work. Filled with fabulous ideas for both artists and crafters, even the absolute beginner will be able to play and experiment along with Water marks.

Hierdie boek neem jou verby die tradisionele voorkoms van ligte, sagte en bykans deurskynende waterverfwerk. Leer hoe om ryk, lewendige beelde te skep nie net met waterverf op papier nie, maar ook met ander mediums en materiaal. Jy behou die waterige gevoel, maar versterk en verbreed die moontlike tekstureringseffek. Die projekte toon hoe verskeie watermediums op bekende dog onkonvensionele maniere gebruik kan word. Verf, ink, kleurpotlode en lapkleursel vorm die kleurkomponent, terwyl tekstuurmediums deel van die repertoire uitmaak. Heelwat projekte is op waterverfpapier, maar skilderdoek, karton en velyn of natrekpapier kom ook voor. Daar is baie eenvoudige gestruktureerde tegnieke wat stap-vir-stap gevolg kan word om 'n baie soortgelyke voorkoms te skep vir handwerkprojekte. Maar lesers word ook aangemoedig om met meer spontane en minder gekontroleerde tegnieke (ook stapsgewys geillustreer) hulle eie skeppende weg te volg en avontuurlustig te wees, risiko's te loop en met hulle gelukkige 'ongelukke' te werk. Minder suksesvolle werk kan op baie verskillende maniere ingespan word en die boek bevat idees oor hoe sulke werk met nuwe kunswerk geinkorporeer kan word. Water-(verf-)kuns is propvol wonderlike idees vir kunstenaars en handwerkers en selfs groentjies sal wil saamspeel en eksperimenteer.

One of the difficulties about how our minds work is that we often cannot quite clearly see or know what is inside us. Art therapists have a longstanding tradition of prescribing image-making to prompt expression of feelings, often by asking people to draw, paint, or sculpt "how you feel." It is one of the fundamental approaches in the field that distinguishes art therapy from verbal techniques that ask people to simply talk about their emotions. Author Erica Jong once wrote that imagery is a form of emotional shorthand. This could be interpreted to mean that while we may use paragraphs of prose to describe an emotional experience, images allow us to communicate simply and directly. At its core, art therapy embraces the paradigm that creating images cuts to the chase when it comes to expressing feelings. The point is not to draw well. But to draw with authenticity. This is specifically a book for people who can't draw.
