From dust jacket notes: "What is transparent painting? Light passes through thin layers of paint, reflects off the white paper behind, and bounces back to the viewer's eye with a special glow. Generations of watercolorists have sought to create this beautiful effect, which is ideal for capturing anything from the frail delicacy of translucent flower petals to the colors of a sunlit landscape to the sheen of a porcelain vase. What makes Julia Jordan's book unique is that she shows artists how to achieve wonderful results in transparent watercolor and in transparent acrylic, a relative newcomer to the artistic scene. Most books and workshops about acrylic concentrate on opaque acrylic - that is, acrylic including white pigment, which can be used to cover an error, for example. This is not what Jordan is talking about. One of her main points is that transparent acrylic works just as well as watercolor for transparent painting, and sometimes better. The artist must simply know a few tricks of the trade, since the two mediums behave slightly differently when applied to paper. Jordan begins with a thorough discussion of materials, tools, and equipment. She then shows, in practical, common-sense terms, just how watercolor and acrylic are alike and different, and how artists can capitalize on the advantages and guard against the pitfalls of each medium. Another key feature of this book is a section devoted entirely to two 'twin' pairs of detailed, step-by-step demonstrations: two of a floral subject and two of a landscape. Jordan renders each subject first in acrylic, then in watercolor, so that the two mediums can be directly compared. A sumptuous selection of the author's finished paintings is found throughout the book: lush still lifes as well as landscapes with a Southwestern flavor. The finished paintings include exquisite examples of both watercolor and acrylic...."
