Advancing with Watercolor: Edges "Shimmering Light on Water"

This is a video done as a supplement to a watercolor class taught by Gary Tucker in Boston. This video demonstrates how an artist looks at their subject in terms of edges. Through a manipulation of edges we can portray atmosphere, the effects of light on different surfaces, and also create a more complete mood. These different edges are created through separate techniques in watercolor and by practicing them in drills and then in your motif you are closer to a mastery of this medium
A tutorial accompanying this video can be found here:

See this video for drills associated with edges:
