Kurzbeschreibung

6. Dezember 2011
Using clear and concise language and in-depth, step-by-step demonstrations, author and renowned artist Mary Whyte guides beginning and intermediate watercolorists through the entire painting process, from selecting materials to fundamental techniques to working with models. Going beyond the practical application of techniques, Whyte helps new artists capture not just the model's physical likeness, but their unique personality and spirit. Richly illustrated, the book features Mary Whyte's vibrant empathetic watercolors and works by such masters of watercolor as Mary Cassatt, Thomas Eakins, Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent, and Georgia O'Keeffe.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good book but title is misleading 23. Dezember 2011
Von Parka TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Taschenbuch
Länge: 1:15 Minuten
It's quite fascinating to see the use of watercolour for painting portraits and figures where there's little room for error. Mary Whyte's watercolour paintings are beautiful, there's realism and you can still see the characteristics of watercolour. However, this is not really a portrait and figure drawing watercolour book. I was misled by the title to buy this book.

While all the examples showcase portrait and figure paintings, the lessons covers general watercolour topics. There are chapters on tools, techniques, understanding values, composition, colours and drawing. All these are very similar to topics in books by other watercolour artists. What's different here is you get to read Mary Whyte's perspective on these subjects, and the short demonstrations that show you how she paints. The paintings tips are all good, but you might have already read them elsewhere.

She does try to relate what's taught back to how you can use them for portraits, but not much. The part of mixing skin colour takes only 3 pages. She lists the colours she uses, highlights points to take note of, and there's a quick 3-step demonstration. That's all for colour mixing for skin.

I'm surprised and disappointed that there's nothing on painting specifics like eyes, lips, ears and hair etc. There's also nothing much on clothing, especially on how she deals with intricate fabric textures because I see them a lot in her paintings.

There's a section on working with models. I found the information there interesting, particularly on the reasons why they are posed a certain way to highlight certain aspects.

As a general watercolour book, it's quite good and you get insight into Mary Whyte's process. However, I was expecting much more for a book with a title on portraits. So I won't recommend this if you're looking to learn portraits with watercolours.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Little actual information on portraits 28. Dezember 2011
Von B. Bacchus - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
I had been one of those who was really looking forward to this book, but am very disappointed. It was to teach the how & why of painting portraits. The first 100 pages are on the basics of watercolor. Who starts painting hoping to produce a picture like the one on the cover of this book? I'd guess NO ONE. So if I'm a seasoned painter I don't need to know what brush to buy, have a color wheel explained... I mean really, a color wheel? So on page 106 we finally get to the actual procedures of painting a portrait. another 10 pages on useful information, but not the procedures of HOW & WHY. Page 127 discusses backgrounds. Page 139 to the end is `Life as an artist' .... PORTRAITS... that's the in-depth information I wanted & I thought it advertised.

3.0 von 5 Sternen More than a little torn. 27. März 2012
Von Rico Lebrun - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
I am a very big fan of Mary Whyte. I think her work is outstanding; she is at the top of her game right now. There are very few artists today working in watercolor that are able to create the quality of work she is creating. Mary is known for her loose/tight paintings. Often a quite loose background surrounding very (VERY) tight work on a figure. I would guess that most artists drawn to her work also love Wyeth. I own four of Mary's books. An Artists Way of Seeing, which has no technique and is all philosophy with some nice reproductions. Watercolor for the Serious Beginner which is exactly what it says. Working South, a showcase of a recent series of portraits and Painting Portraits and Figures in Watercolor, the book being reviewed here. I also own two DVD's. I have learned something from them all and find value in most everything she has to share. I think she is to be commended for going beyond the usual step by step and trying to present a more holistic (for lack of a better word) approach to painting. In and of itself, Painting Portraits and Figures is excellent. If someone wanted one book on the subject I am unaware of one that gives as much breadth as this one. There is some very basic information but there is also some very good in depth information you only glean through much time and work. The color reproductions are excellent and numerous with many close up excerpts. At 160 pages there is only so much you can do. All that said, I think there is one consistent deficit that runs through her two instructional book and two DVD's. I have to believe she is deliberately holding back on teaching about the finish work of her paintings. Many of her most stunning paintings have an extraordinary amount of detail work. I think many of us assumed, after the book Watercolor for the Serious Beginner, we were going to get a more in depth treatment of her complete technique. She does give us three paragraphs on painting details saying, "There is no secret to painting details, since they are nothing more than smaller forms." I think Mary underestimates the value of showing us how she achieves those details. Its a little more than just painting smaller forms. It is like the cartoon making light of step by step instructions where you are taught to draw a portrait by first, draw a ball. Second, mark a center line. Third, mark a line for the eyes and mouth and fourth, draw the face. The first, second and third step simply show a ball and some lines and the fourth step shows a complete face as would be finished by the likes of Rembrandt. It is such a glaring deficit to all her instructional books and dvd's. Perhaps she is simply trying to keep things simple but I am guessing that most people who come to sit at Mary's feet don't want that simplicity. We may not be able to replicate what you do Mary but we want to see how you do it. Your next book needs to be this size (160 pages) and called Painting Detail with Watercolor. Show it all. Show how you draw your initial detail. Show how you mask off some parts. Show your first washes in such areas that are to be finished in detail, such as the beard of the man in Absolution. (Do you literally go in with a tiny brush and delineate the hairs by painting between them?) Information like this is not just a matter of "painting smaller forms". I will recommend this book to anyone because it certainly has a great deal of value for any water-colorist. But Mary, please, show us what we come to you to see.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One chapter earns this book 5 Stars 1. Oktober 2013
Von Cassiopea - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is an outstanding book on portraiture. I say that as a professional portrait artist working in oil. I can't vouch for the technical discussion on watercolor, but the overall coverage of portraiture is very thorough.

One chapter in particular puts this book over the top, in my opinion...that is the chapter on backgrounds. This topic is rarely addressed. I spent 4 years in art school and never heard it discussed. Very difficult to find anything in print on backgrounds. It's just not out there.

Mary devotes an entire chapter to an extensive and thoughtful treatment of the subject, pointing out how critical the background is to the success of the image. And she provides lots of suggestions for background strategies. Worth the price of the whole book...seriously.
