Passion is one of the most important elements in a masterful work of art. Without it, a painting is a lifeless collection of composition and technique. Here, internationally respected watercolorist Alvaro Castagnet shows artists how to paint from their heart--capturing more than just subjects, but the thoughts, feelings and emotions that give them impact. Detailed demonstrations show how to: * create passion through a perfect marriage of tonal values * inject mystery and drama by manipulating shadows * use color to express powerful emotion * simplify a scene to better express the artist's feelings for the subject * set a mood, create rhythm, and ultimately achieve perfect unity Through it all, artists will take their passion for painting--and personal satisfaction from their work--to a higher plateau. Alvaro Castagnet has taught and traveled extensively throughout the US, Mexico, South America, Europe and Australia. His award-winning work is part of private and corporate collections around the world. He lives in Melbourne, Australia.
