Format: Paperback
If you are new to watercolour painting then this book is for you. As soon as you open it, a quick flick through reveals many very basic techniques and some more advanced ones. It is lavishly and clearly illustrated throughout and does not appear to over complicate explanations, ergo it is good for quick referencing (a clear contents list at the beginning enhances this fact as well).
The book itself is also pocket size and is ideal for taking on fieldtrips.

Conclusion: An essential, 'have-to-hand' book for any new to enthusiastic amateur painter and an excellent stocking filler.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This little book punches way above its weight. I have gained far more instruction from this pocket-sized volume, than I have from much larger books.
I gained a much-needed systematic approach to creating a painting, breaking the picture down to seven-steps. The use of transparent, and opaque colours is discussed; something I've never come across before. This helped me to easily gain the depth that was lacking in my attempts before.
As to the size of the book; useful for taking anywhere, but the illustrations inevitably lack the impact of larger ones.

tucks away in yr pocket or art case, great for tips, refreshing your ideas or simply reference!
I had it downloaded on my Kindle,so impressed that I bought the physical copy! Whether a beginner or a seasoned artist, I feel this book will be a useful buy!

I loved this handy little book; as a new watercolour artist I have lots to learn, and Ian presents techniques, advice, and tips in an easily understood style. Added to this are examples of his work which further illustrate the advice given. An enjoyable read and useful guide for practicing techniques and to keep close at hand for reference when working on a painting.
