5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant inprirational watercolour painting guide
Unlike most of the modern "how to" painting books this one assumes the reader has more than four brain cells and some limited ability. Rowland's style is loose and impressionistic.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not sure this is for me
I have always admired Rowland Hilder's work but having bought this book I am not too enthralled with it. It has a lot of text which is heavy going to read through when all I want to do is start painting!

This review is from: Starting with Watercolour (Paperback)
Unlike most of the modern "how to" painting books this one assumes the reader has more than four brain cells and some limited ability. Rowland's style is loose and impressionistic. He captures the very essence of his subject. This book gives a fantastic insight into a master craftsman. It both teaches and inspires. This is a long way from the "painting by numbers" approach of so many "how to" books currently around. And there is one other difference - Rowland Hilder can actually paint - beautifully.

4.0 out of 5 stars Happy with my purchase, 13 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Starting with Watercolour (Paperback)
I already have several of Rowland Hilder's books and wanted to add this one to my collection.
I like it a lot and it is in quite good condition.
If you like watercolours in these tones, you'll like the book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Give this one a miss, 17 Jun 2010
I find this a thoroughly dreary little book with only a few colour plates. I can't imagine that it would inspire anyone to start painting with watercolours.
