I hope this book will help you to move in the direction that you are seeking, and I wish you all the best in achieving your artistic goals.” -Ron Hazell

    If you want to learn a great deal about how light and water interact, this is the book you should read. Painting water can be difficult, but this book will help artists of any medium to understand how water (falling, in waves, still, or ruffled by a slight breeze) reflects its environment.
