5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended, 14 Feb. 2017
What a terrific new watercolor book! Beautifully and clearly designed. Lots of new watercolor material to discover here. Perhaps for the more advanced watercolorist but worth buying whatever stage you're at. Love the double spread of all his moleskine sketchbooks on pages 26-27 (16 of them!). This artist doesn't sleep. Very specific details and watercolor tips included. Will you succeed in painting like Freeborn by the conclusion? Probably not and maybe a good thing. Will you have learned a lot of new valuable material? Definitely yes! Highly recommended to all serious watercolorists. Thank you Wil for a beautiful book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this book!, 13 Oct. 2016
Excelent exercises. A terrific book useful at any stage to loosen you up, stretch your skills and gain more confidence with the watercolor medium. Do the 'developmental lesson charts' on page 40 and do them again and again. Tremendous fun and liberating. Then tackle the individual projects. You'll gain insight into classic British watercolor masters, methods and palettes in a way I haven't seen demonstrated elsewhere. The charts offer simple exercises. Just use a big brush and do many small studies on the same page. Like doing scales on the piano but more fun.my new fav watercolor book. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific all-round watercolor instruction. Straight to the point., 18 Aug. 2016
I'm loving this book. Lots of terrific watercolor tips and exercises. Very basic starting at aquare 1 with thumbnails and value sketches and working up from there. Her demos give precise instruction though I would have loved to see brush on paper shots of how she does those lush skies. Sometimes I found the pre-finish art preferable, simpler than the finish but that's personal. Photos of different ways to hold the brush are terrific! And a nice simple, basic color palette anyone can learn from using. An Excellent book IMHO.

5.0 out of 5 stars Plunge in and bake. Easy peasy!, 13 April 2016
Admittedly I'm biased since I painted the endpaper Paris map for TEATIME IN PARIS, but Jill has given me some personal baking lessons from the book as well. Being a hopeless baker, miracles happened none the less. And I have the perfect financiers to prove it. I did it my way while Jill giggled at my faux pas, like using spoons instead of a pastry bag or tossing the almonds helter skelter like rain onto the little cakes. They still came out divinely. I CAN bake after all, thanks to jill's easy peasy recipes and lovely photos. Little tips like listening for the browning butter's chirp are terrific too. Loads of fun instead of stress, doing it mostly Jill's way to french pastry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring and exquisite compendium on a brilliant muse of Paris., 17 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Loulou de La Falaise (Hardcover)
An exquisite, luscious, detailed book, full of inspiration. What an extraordinary woman, endlessly talented, muse to top designers, yet kind and generous of spirit. If you love Paris, Loulou de la Falaise embodies all the charm, chic and ebullience of a glass of Champagne. Full of quotes from those who knew and loved her best. A must-have book if you dream of Paris often.
