4.0 out of 5 stars The Landscape Painter's Essential Handbook, 7 Jun. 2012

This review is from: The Landscape Painter's Essential Handbook: How to Paint 50 Beautiful Landscapes in Watercolour (Paperback)
This book is really excellent, it has some lovely pictures and tips to create some really nice effects. As someone else has mentioned it doesn't 'hold your hand', out of the 50 pictures there are only one or two where it really gives instructions for the whole picture. Most of the time you have the picture there to copy and it gives you tips on creating certain effects, but not a step by step guide. This will suit some people but not others.

If you are a total beginner I would still recommend the book, as it has some of the nicest pictures I have found in a tutorial book so far and it's very detailed in the instructions it does give. I think there's something here for everyone, but if you're a beginner I'd recommend buying it alongside a more comprehensive beginner's book which will give you some basic techniques. This is more like a resource book of pictures to copy with a few tips. Also, most of the pictures in this book use masking fluid so you will also need that if you want to create the exact same effects.
