We rated this book:


Whether new or experienced, this watercolor manual is graciously informative as to materials required, basic techniques employed, and offers entrancingly attractive watercolor illustrations that the user can attempt to emulate in following the encouraging directions. The described techniques are further enriched with QR codes leading to videos which translate the instructions into visible actions.

The book is simply divided into four parts. For the beginner, it outlines the essential materials, describes wet-on-wet painting, reviews primary colors and answers basic questions. This section starts with a painting willow leaves as a beginning project, followed by using shapes to paint multicolored tulips, carrots, and even rolling hillside vistas. The lessons continue to share more techniques as the paintings of tigers, hydrangeas, magnolia blossoms, forest scenes unfold before the reader.

Possible questions or problems that may be encountered during the instructional lessons are answered at the end of each section. As an aid to the beginner, templates for many of the painted subjects are included which can serve as a starting crutch. This is a delightful watercolor painting guide in which the vividly colored sampled illustrations attract the eye.
