4.0 out of 5 stars Not for the complete novice, 13 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Landscape Painter's Essential Handbook: How to Paint 50 Beautiful Landscapes in Watercolour (Paperback)
The book as others have said is excellent and informative and is packed with a wealth of knowledge. The opening sections about materials and the like are great and there is also some useful drawing tips, perspective insights, washes and colour mixing info

But as a small warning to any raw beginner (Like me) the book doesn't 'hold your hand' step by step but suggests what you need to do in each stage by showing the end result your trying to achieve, with each of the 50 landscapes described over a single page with small illustrations for the main technique and a full page almost, showing the completed landscape. This is not a problem for those with more experience but for the 'newbee' it can lead to some confusion and the opportunity to grow your scrap paper collection!.

Great book to have ready though when you have a bit more of an understanding of watercolour medium.
