Nicely done book on painting water with watercolor. The author gives many step by step demonstrations guiding you through the various water scenes one may encounter.
Nicely illustrated and well explained. One of the better books to cover the topic of water for the watercolor artist.
I received my book last weekend and I started the first project. The explanations are very clear. After about 5 hours or so j had my first watercolor completed. I am very happy with the content and I recommend this book to anyone looking for technique advice .
