"Aqua Art 7+" Art Principles Through Coloring

"Aqua Art 7+" Art Principles Through Coloring


Why is this course so special and unique? You are unlikely to find art instruction elsewhere showing you how to color the subject of water, which is so varied and complicated, but the lessons in this course make it simple.

So what kind of variety can be found by coloring water? If you're thinking, "Is this just 36 lessons on how to run a blue crayon back and forth across the page?" you are in for a very pleasant surprise! In this course we cover a wide variety of different forms and colors of water, and our lessons include birds, mammals, reptiles, an amphibian, and unusual, colorful fish.

You will be using many different blues, turquoises, greens and brown on rivers, lakes, the ocean, even a waterfall. And you will color an equal number of underwater scenes and scenes on water surfaces.

You will learn how to show wave motion, moving water, ripples, depth, splashes, river action, color gradations, underwater terrain, surface reflection, and animals in action.

The creatures you will find and color in these lessons include: caribou, otter, bear, iguana, polar bears, muskrat, seals, horses, whales, dolphins, sea turtles, ducks, eagle, sparrows, raccoon, water birds, water snake, manatees, frog and tadpoles, kingfisher and more.

This course is one of a kind, combining so many different kinds of animals, forms of water, and many other art concepts as well, such as shading and the use of strokes that show texture. This course is a FEAST for any artist. And you will learn a great deal whether you are 12 or in your teens or twenties, or an adult. Parents, you will learn right alongside your home schooled kids.

This book is reproducible for all students living in the same home as the book’s owner.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
