The most helpful book I have read. Advice on which colors to use to set up a palette that does make your watercolors vibrant and alive. Jeanne gives you specific directions about transparent, staining and opaque watercolors in a way that makes one remember it. The book is full of wonderful color charts and examples of paintings. She is a rare find in that she is able to turn out gorgeous paintings and teach how to do it as well. Jeanne, when are you going to put out some videos? I want to SEE you paint!

Jeanne Dobie's use of color, and her inspiring instructions on how to really make color work for you, take water color instruction out of the "fill in the blank" mode, and really open the doors to creating art. There is something here for every level of ability. My copy rarely gets put away!

Jeanne Dobie truly makes color sing. She also makes color theory understandable. Her paintings are beautiful. I have had this book for several years and have gone through it over and over. A real color bible. If I could only have one book in my art instruction library this would be the one.

This book deals with color theory for watercolorists, particularly the use of a limited palette originated and championed by the author. There is little or no discussion of basics such as brushes, paper, etc.

Artists looking to reduce the number of pigments on their palette while keeping a full range of color will find the author's ideas and color theory of interest.

After reading the first six chapters I knew I had made a good choice. The chapters are to the point and well illustrated although I do believe that a complete beginner would struggle. I would suggest that it would be an excellent choice for the intermediate or advanced amateur who knew what they wanted. However a dedicated beginner would I believe be able to follow each step to a successful conclusion.
