Starting Out in Watercolours (How to Draw & Paint) (How to Draw and Paint)
Starting Out in Watercolours (How to Draw & Paint) (How to Draw and Paint)
by Caroline Linscott
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Require more time to give a considered opinion, 11 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having only just entered the realm of watercolour painting from years of photography, I am just equiping myself with the bits and pieces necessary. I have been testing out my drawing skills in parallel with the collection of paint brushes, paint stretching boards etc. and am about to put brush to paper ...damp (this was news to me)_.
I have dipped into the DVD along with the download of Watercolour Secrets which I found very helpful in getting started.
As I have more practice, I am sure that the purchase of the full set of DVD's will be an essential feature in coming to grips with the art of watercolour painting.
Congratulations on producing a very helpful and detailed set of instructions

4.0 out of 5 stars The real Li Yan, 25 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having read all the Chinese thrillers, I was interested in reading about the author and his knowledge of the real Li Yan.
and his wide range of contacts in the police force. I expect that should you goto Beijing, all the route and places covered in the book would be real.

This gives a degree of authority as the stories unfold.

5.0 out of 5 stars accrate drawing, 11 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After using a number of cheap Stylus pens which were fit for purpose, I was searching for a pen with more accuracy although I could no in my mind define what I meant by 'accuracy'. On trying our my new Adonit Jot Pen I realised that what I had wanted was the ability to accurately place the point of the stylus pen to start drawing. This the Adonit pen achieves by having a 1mm. metal ball point on a small projection at the end of the pen. On the point is suspended a small 3mm clear plastic disk which allows you to see precisely where the point of the pen is placed. Simple, but very effective. A screw on cap is provided to safeguard the pen assembly when not in use.

4.0 out of 5 stars Where the colanders went in 1939, 31 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the second time this book was printed with a long gap between them. It was very interesting to read about this group of specialists and the business skills of their CEO in persuading subcontractors to their highest efforts in design and production of the cunning devices designed.
I found it very disappointing that there is very little left of their incredible skills, just a few items in the War Museum I believe in London. Their efforts deserve more recognition.

Rather advanced for someone new to both the Ipad and to painting. Maybe after some practice with both it will be more relevant.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ned Green, 11 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very interesting book. I particularly liked the middle section which takes the form of an imagined dialogue between Copernicus and Rheticus about the reason why he arrived at the home of Copernicus and matters related to the printing of The Copernicus book.
Reading this book started me currently reading Galileos Daughter by the same author.

Up to the usual Bernard Cornwell historical accuracy set into a fascinating novel which once you start reading, becomes compulsory until the end is reached.

4.0 out of 5 stars Secrets of ProShow Experts, 3 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book should be read after some experience with creating a simple Digital Slide Show, using such programs as ProShow Gold or ProShow Producer.

Chapter 1 to 7 are primarily concerned with the skills required to produce a good and interesting show and are not of a technical nature. As the heading for the first chapter states, Technique-Not Technology. The advise given in these chapters is essential for anyone creating a digital slide show.

Chapters 8 to 12 outline some of the ProShow techniques ranging from the simple to the complex. To become more skilled with the Technology, the two books by James Karney, The Official Photodex Guide to ProShow /Proshow 4 should be consulted.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kydd by Julian Stockwin, 10 Dec 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kydd (Hardcover)
First in a series of books by the author and should be read before others in the series as the backgound is important.
A different approach to stories of the sea in the Napoleonic period.
