What a great idea!,
This review is from: Watercolour Landscapes (Ready to Paint) (Paperback)
In his latest book, Terry Harrison has taken away the fear factor for duffers like me. I like to paint, but cannot draw well enough to get what I see on paper. I own a multitude of instructional volumes, but none have improved my output like this book did. It provided the skeletons of the landscapes to allow me to get it on my paper, and then follow the instructions about painting. It may not have improved my technique, but it has greatly improved my confidence! I'm still not an artist, but I'm beginning to see where I went wrong before and feel more able to branch out on my own. I hope there will be a similar publication for seascapes, to allow me to get as much understanding of those as this book enabled me to about landscapes. If there were an award for best instructional art book of the year, this would definitely get my vote. Thank you Terry Harrison.

Terry is one of the best of our landscape art teachers. His books and DVDs bring painting to life and seeing him in action is a treat.

If you want to get on with seascapes, don't waste your time on this stuff, get Draw Seascapes (Draw Books) and start to be a real artist.
