No more wimpy watercolors! Kill it or cure it!

The end. It happens to the best of artists... that frustrating point in a painting where you don't know how to finish it up, when to stop, or where to go from here. Too often this is the very same stage where half-finished paintings get stacked in the corner and written-off as "hopeless."

This unique, workshop-style book will help you recognize these works not as "bad" or "failed" paintings, merely unfinished. What's more, you'll learn how to take these beautiful starts—that pale painting hiding in your closet or the bombs stashed under your bed—and turn them into finished, gutsy, exhibition-quality pieces.

Follow Susan Webb Tregay's five steps to more successful watercolors, and learn how to finish your painting your way—with polish and pizzazz! You'll discover clean and easy solutions to your painting's problems, debunking once and for all that old myth that watercolor is unforgiving. Fifteen step-by-step demonstrations and many before-and-after examples illustrate the incredible difference these simple techniques can make in your art.

With Master Disaster, you can stop dreading "the end," and start anticipating the big finish!
