A book for every one who would like to loosen up in your style it is a very encouraging book reinforcing the notion that creating a good painting is a skill which can be taught. --Judith Farnworth Art

To that degree, they didn't inspire me, and inspiration is the stated aim of the book.
That said, I can certainly use and develop some ideas from the book and at a cover price of £12.99 even if I take away only one idea it would be worth the money.
this is probably the only painting book which i have read cover to cover (most books i skim). most abstracts tend to be in oils and acrylics, so it is really refreshing to see so many stunning works of abstract art in watercolour. i know i will be drooling over the pages of this book every day for many many days to come.
this is not an instructional manual, and gives away very little about technique and tips. it fairly assumes that the reader will approach it as a source of inspiration, and is not aimed at a total beginner. while i am not looking for volumes of instruction, a little bit more detail than what has been given (at least for one or two paintings) would've earned this book five stars.
if u r looking for a book that tells u how, dont buy this. if u r looking for a book that shows u what - what is possible if u persevere - dont think twice.
