5.0 out of 5 stars Atmospheric watercolours by Jean Haines
A truly inspirational book! Beautifully and sensitively written, readers will no doubt identify with the author's early days, as she coped with criticism and destructive remarks most often offered by people who know everything about nothing and nothing about everything!
For many years I have tried loosening up my watercolour technique to little avail, but after...

2.0 out of 5 stars very disappointed
Very little on technique more a showcase for her work.She bases most projects on salt and cling film- which she claims to have invented!!Very waffly and very little actual help with getting down to a painting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seeking inspiration?, 1 Jun. 2012

This review is from: Jean Haines' Atmospheric Watercolours: Painting with Expression, Freedom and Style (Hardcover)
If you have been fortunate enough to attend one(or more!) of Jean's workshops, you will already know that she has the unique gift of instilling feelings of inspiration and self belief in her students. In her latest book,Atmospheric Watercolours, she accomplishes this and more....a very exciting, informative and immensely readable book. Now, where are my Jean Haines'brushes.....

This review is from: Jean Haines' Atmospheric Watercolours: Painting with Expression, Freedom and Style (Hardcover)
Having seen the artist's work, I had looked forward to this book.Whilst the work is impressive,there is little guidance on creative motive.I agree that the tenor is self- promotive, & she appears to claim the invention of techniques that many of us have used for years.
For other teachers of similar approaches, try Bridget Woods, Hazel Lale & Sheila Gill.
