A fresh approach to portrait and figure painting in watercolor!
In Painting People in Watercolor, Alex Powers provides a comprehensive guide on working with watercolor, mastering the principals of design, and understanding the fundamentals of portrait painting.

The culmination of 23 years of Powers's painting experience, Painting People in Watercolor provides clarity and insight on successful watercolor painting techniques for novice to advanced students and doubles as a guide for teachers.
