On his own admission, Charles Evans "doesn't faff about" when he's painting, and the style of his book equally "faff-free". Written simply for the novice or someone wishing to learn more about effective water colour techniques, the book contains easy to follow guides on everything from equipment to mixing colours and applying the paint, with many photographs exemplifying the points being made. Perhaps not a suitable book for the purists or those locked into traditional teaching methods developed in bygone centuries, it is nevertheless, a very useful guide for those who fancy having a go at water colour painting but are not quite sure how to set about it.

Charlie really is the master of his art, if you've seen his TV programmes then you don't need me to tell you how good he is, if you haven't then take it from me Charlie quickly and easily debunks the myth that watercolours are difficult and unforgiving, I was amazed at how easily a painting appears out of a blank piece of paper - Unless you are an amoeba you cannot fail to produce a painting which will stun you, when you step back from it and see the end result you will be amazed. It doesn't matter what medium Charlie is using (oil, watercolour or watercolour pencils) ALL of his books give clear, concise instruction, they are well edited and provide well thought out instructions because Charlie is writing these books and sharing his knowledge with you - the student so that you can learn that painting doesn't have to be uptight and difficult, here you will learn how easy it can be, the techniques are easy to follow and if you think you can't do it, don't criticise the instruction, don't be hard on yourself ... keep going ... better yet, try and get to a workshop (visit [...] [diary page]) for venues local to where you are and if you can get to a workshop you can paint along with Charlie, this is invaluable tuition.

Back to the books - practise the excercises and then paint. Sounds simple? well, take it from me it is. Even if you're not happy with what you produce - what have you done? - wasted a piece of paper. So, simply turn it over and start again.

Charlie is so good at what he does, he is THE best painter of his generation, he is a friendly, outgoing, inspirational person ... his confidence in YOUR ability is stunning. As he so rightly points out art is subjective; ie: your painting will be different from mine yet we will have both followed the same instructions.

There is nothing wrong with the product on its own. However, pretty much the entire content is already included in another Charles Evans book that I've already got. Therefore, instead of spending the money on this book, for a couple of pounds more I would buy "Quick and Clever Watercolours" (ISBN-13: 978-0-7153-3853-7; ISB-10: 0-7153-3853-7) instead, which has got several other exercises in it too. I have found that book really helpful in providing me with some tips and help in getting going as I've not had any formal training in watercolour painting.

This is a very helpful book for those developing the techniques of water colour painting. It,s a no nonsense approach and one of the best I have used.

Format: Hardcover
THERE ARE MANY MANY ART BOOKS ON THE MARKET RIGHT NOW - AND THIS IS NOT ONE I COULD RECOMMEND AT ALL. THE ARTIST (CHARLES EVANS) HAS A STYLE OF HIS OWN AND A TEACHING TECHNIQUE WHICH LENDS ITSELF TO FRANK CLARK (WHO HAS BEEN DOING THIS FOR MANY MORE YEARS THAN EVANS AND WITH STYLE AND PERSONALITY ). THIS IS AN ATTENTION GRABBER ATTEMPTING TO GET THE ASPIRING ARTIST THINKING THEY ARE GOING TO FIND AN EASY WAY TO PAINT. THERE IS NO EASY WAY TO PAINT AND YOU WON'T LEARN IT FROM THIS BOOK - IT TAKES TIME TO DEVELOP TECHNIQUE - WHICH ISN'T A BAD THING -------- BECAUSE ONCE LEARNT PROPERLY ITS NEVER FORGOTTEN. AVOID THIS BOOK AND CHOOSE A MORE ESABLISHED ARTIST WHO WILL TEACH YOU ALL YOU NEED TO LEARN NOT JUST PARTY TRICKS. A POOR EXAMPLE FROM AN ARTIST WHO SHOULD REALLY KNOW BETTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
