5.0 out of 5 stars The Art of Ray Balkwill 22 Dec 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I first came across Ray Balkwills work in a gallery in St. Ives, Cornwall three years ago. For me his work was distinctive and just kept drawing my eye. So much so that I cannot remember any other work in the gallery. Since then wherever I see a Balkwill I seem to recognise it instantly. This book (and his others which I now have) give you a good insight into how he produces such attractive and distinctive work. As a beginner artist myself it has also help me move into mixed media painting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Water Media 28 Jun 2008
By George C. Vail - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
A jewel of a book for the artist interested in a combination of water media along with the unusual use of pastel.Very free use of watercolor in demonstrations should make all artists unafraid of its use.
