I received my copy of Splash 17, inspiring subjects yesterday and the book looks gorgeous. What I like about the Splash collection is the opportunity to see how so many different artists can express themselves in different styles and in different subjects with the same medium of watercolor.

I have one painting featured in the book, it is a portrait of my daughter Louise as she was taking a selfie in front of a mirror. The paradox is actually we can’t see her face in that selfie ūüôā

splash 17 watercolor competition book Edited by Rachel Rubin Wolf

‚ÄčA revealing gesture, a brilliant quality of light, a particularly perfect bloom… this volume of¬†Splash¬†is dedicated to those glorious sparks of inspiration, and the stories of how 129 artists fanned them into some of today’s greatest watercolor paintings. The emotional connection between subject and artist resonates in these pages, delivering the caliber of art and insight that has made¬†Splash¬†a perennial favorite.

  • 135 paintings, reproduced in large, juicy color
  • A diverse range of styles and subjects, including still lifes, portraits, city scenes, animals and landscapes
  • Commentary reveals the artists’ passion, approaches and techniques

The artists spotlighted inside found inspiration in even unlikely places. They spotted it in peeling paint, the faces of strangers, and the view from the kitchen window. They found beauty in places as poetic as Paris, and as seemingly pedestrian as a dilapidated shed. From a hawk proudly posed against a cloudless, cerulean sky to an everyday table setting transformed by light into a kaleidoscope of color, these are the moments that stopped artists in their tracks, to create the kind of paintings that do the same. “Whatever made you hold your breath or turn your head the first time you saw it, that is what you should paint!” –Kathleen Lanzoni

acrylicworks 3 book by North Light booksThis edition of AcrylicWorks focuses on the theme of texture! The broad theme allows for an amazing variety of styles and approaches. Explore how each individual artist takes to capturing their three-dimensional world onto a two dimensional surface. Each translation is unique and inspiring. From shocking hyper-realism to harmonious abstractions, and everything in between, the visual interest of each artist is expressed beautifully and calls your attention into seeing the beauty within any part of our world. See the world as they see it and allow yourself to fall into their paintings as you try to understand both their technique as well as their conceptual focus. Reading each statement certainly gives each work a new air of significance and character
