I only got to know of Milind Mulick in 2012 when I first shared some of his paintings on this blog. He's a watercolour artist from India and has been painting for 30 years.
This book first came out in 2000. The edition that I have is the 13th reprint from 2014.
Looking at his work now and comparing it to the ones from the book, I can only say that he gets better and better. The watercolour paintings are beautiful then, and even more beautiful now.
His book Watercolour is a collection of paintings, techniques and demonstrations. He talks about sketching, composition, colours and most importantly the joy of painting. Also included are some of his pencil sketches which by the way are terrific as well — he could release a book on pencil sketching too.
The demonstrations included are paragraphs describing the series of work-in-progress paintings. It's enlightening to read and find out about his approach to starting the painting.
Overall, this book is meant to be a complement to the more structured watercolour instructional books. The tips and techniques offered are timeless and insightful.
This is a wonderful book of beautiful art and a nice source of inspiration.
