While any subject can be developed with a variety of compositional strategies, in most cases, it is not the subject but the composition of the work that gives a painting its originality and appeal. How you compose your painting determines the way people will view it and how they will be affected by it emotionally. This special 20th edition features the best watercolor paintings selected from an international call for entries, along with instructive, insightful commentary on the theme of Creative Compositions and a special gallery of cover art from the past 19 editions.
