Eric Wiegardt addresses his students most common questions about creating better, looser watercolor paintings from photographs.
Outside Edge Shapes - In Outside Edge Shapes, Eric shows that one of the key components in painting loosely is a proper understanding of edge interpretation. He demonstrates how you can bypass much of the unnecessary detail as long as adherence to edge interpretation is maintained. This is especially helpful to those who want to "get it down, get it done and get to lunch!" and yet still have satisfying results.
