its a pleasure to watch someone who enjoys her art, and I loved the looseness of the way she worked which you cant really see from a book. I would recommend this to my other artist friends

I Really enjoyed this DVD and have also bought the book. It was fascinating to see Ann work and how she builds up her pictures.
I am only at the beginners stage but will certainly try doing some big blowsy and fabulous vibrant colourful pictures of my own.
I have several other Books and DVDs, but found this appealed to me far more than most. She demonstrates several experimental techniques and tries to encourage you to expand your thinking. I think there were about 6 demonstrations.
Her book is gorgeous and I also love the vivid colours she uses, I have also purchased her new book, Experimental Landscapes, 2014 which is also wonderful and I look forward to reading it properly. It really captured my imagination, but it may to be for everyone.

What Anne demonstrates so well within her demonstrations on this DVD, is the pure creative freedom one can enjoy without the need to get bogged down by "watercolour rules" without the need to be an expert draughtsman.
I have viewed this DVD numerous times and pick up new detail on the techniques used each time. During the recording you do pick up on the reflection of the recording technician in the mirror moving about, whilst doing their best to stifle a cough!, but this is only a minor irritation and for those who want to explore what is possible with flower painting this DVD is a must.

I know Ann Blockleys work a little and the dvd is amazing, her new book which is just out is well worth getting, can't put it down. Amazon is very reliable in every way and I am always happy to order with them. I think they describe everything very well.

Very good DVD stepper exercises are very good and explains a lot of his technique, I learned a lot and I think it is worth actually. The only thing is that two very similar exercise of sunflowers in mixed media and I think one left over, I would have preferred a different exercise and no two similar exercises

Bought this DVD for my wife who prefers to work in pastels. This DVD has inspired her to try watercolour again as previously she did not think she was making any progrees with the medium.

This book is a little different from Ann's previous titles in that it is packed with suggestions for extending the boundaries of traditional representation.
I found it exciting and easy to read and to interpret her ideas in relation to my own.
I would suggest that previous experience of watercolour etc. would enable you to fully benefit from the book.
Read it with an open mind and you will be amazed at your results.
Enjoy the book - it is worth every penny.
Ann.
