5.0 out of 5 stars The first Charles Evans book I bought - this was just the beginning!, 11 May 2007
This review is from: Art of Watercolour, The (Paperback)
Being somewhat afraid to go near watercolours after disastrous results before Charlie came along, I decided to face the fear and paint anyway - but only after reading the book. I'd seen Charlie on TV as have a lot of people and he made watercolours look so easy, but as we all know watercolours are notoriously difficult to do yes? well actually, no. Charlie is so effortlessly inspiring that after watching him give a demonstration at a local Expo, I bought the book (and a picture he'd done in twenty minutes, he is amazing) by the time I came home I was so fired up I wanted to paint, so got the paints, paper and easel out and ran off a couple of paintings.

If you can get to a workshop then please do so, take it from me there is nothng which compares to having one to one tuition (which is what you get on one of Charlie's workshops). Class sizes range from 12 to 16, and if you are the slightest bit hesitant, don't be - if you make a mistake Charlie will guide you through it. He's been painting for so many years and as such he makes instruction fun and I'd defy you not to have enjoyed your time with him. Despite his hectic schedule Charlie makes your time with him enjoyable, and you get to paint some lovely pictures, he makes painting, and learning about painting, fun - and that's what it should be.

The Art of Watercolour is just one in a series of books by this wonderful Artist and it is excellent for showing you how to go about painting your first picture, there are recommendations on which brushes are the best, which paper, paints etc. All this doesn't cost a fortune either, if you're stuck as to where to buy the equipment Charlie has his own website at [...] and being the leading demonstrator for Daler Rowney, you know you are getting THE best tuition, guidance and confidence from THE best Artist of his generation.

So ... what are you waiting for? go pick up a paintbrush and do it now ... you will amaze yourself at just how easy it is, and most of all enjoy it!
