5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant 3 Feb 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I don't paint in watercolours, but I bought this anyway in the hope that there would be something in it I could use. I was not wrong. This is the best art instruction book I have bought so far, and the hand and foot tutorials really helped me nail what has up to now been a problem area for me, she doesn't go into all the itsy bitsy little bones and muscles but gives a simple demonstration using block shapes and lines which I found very easy to understand and apply to my own art. The walk-throughs are great, but it's the little side notes and tips that really make this book worth having - such as how foliage lies on a tree, how hair looks dry, wet, underwater, how clothes flow in the wind etc.
I would highly recommend this book even if you don't use watercolours, a lot of the lessons can be applied to any media.
Although I think I may give watercolours a go now....

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolutely invaluable book! 21 May 2008
By BethP
Format:Paperback
This book has all the basics of techniques (very clearly explained), and plenty of step-by-step demonstrations. It is crammed with stunning artwork, very original, and totally inspirational! My only problem was deciding which fabulous creature to try first (the Mermaids won).

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for Watercolour! 2 Jun 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book will appeal to anyone who loves the "Magical" fantasy imagery. I found it to be well designed and laid out. The natural progression of improving skill levels was well done and obviously tested out along the way. The sections on drawing - Hands, Feet, Poses and Wings where excellent. They pinpointed the basic structural aspects, making these problem areas so much easier and comfortable to get right. The artist and writer of the book's images are inspirational, and that is part of it, to get you bursting to have a go. I found the " with Watercolor " in the title misleading in a way. You could learn so much from this book on the subject of Angel, Faery & Mermaid Worlds using any media. I have found the drawings I have done, once scanned into an art programme, allow digital painting. There are about 13 pages in (chapter 1) about Watercolour materials and techniques. There is the odd pointer about Watercolour along the way afterwards. It is the delightful illustrations and tips relative to producing quality work, composition and flow, style and believability of fantasy realms that is the strength of this book. If you have any "Art Materials" laying around unused and lack inspiration? After a browse through this book you will be getting them out and enjoying your own beautiful fantasy art!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!! 21 May 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What a great surprise it was for me, this book!
It's even better than i thought.
It's a very big book (175 pages).
Beggins like all the others, with useful tips on how to use watercolor, brushes, mixing materials to get diferent effects (like salt).
Then the author provides step by step images along with useful tips of how the efects where acomplished, the colors used to get just the right skin tone, the right environment and so on.
Also provides tips and drawings for the face, body dynamics, wings, clothing, adornments...
It is a very complete book that is very useful to learn (i'm sure you'll learn many things, at least i did) and also as a great inspiration.
Excelent book!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great purchase 4 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was full of great advice. It guides you clearly through use of watercolour techniques which are useful for novices and more advanced artists, as well as suggesting how you can apply the techniques to painting fantasy art. Easy to follow step-by-step instructions and beautiful artwork to look at.
