Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I buy far too many of these art books, and have been trying to cut back - but I am very glad I bought this one! At 144 pages (don't know why the description says 128 - mine has 144) there is plenty of material to suit different types of readers. One critique addresses the use of different types of art supplies, such as watercolor and Inktense pencils: rather than seeing it as expensive to duplicate, I see this book as an invitation to look at what you have and try experimenting, using your supplies innovatively. There are great ideas and pictures to inspire your imagination.
I have not read all the way through this book yet (just received it a few days ago), but so far I am really enjoying it and am learning some new techniques. The artwork is really beautiful and inspiring. If you are a much more experienced watercolorist than I am, some of the information may not be new, but if you haven't tried the water soluble pencils and sticks, you may want to take a peek at this book as a way of integrating some non-traditional media in your paintings. I can't wait to try this myself.
New, exciting, and innovative ideas for the beginner as well as more experienced artists await the reader. Lots of tips on using Inktense, too, which is helpful for anyone who has not included the pencils in their bag of tricks.
