This book is both beautiful to look at and practical to use. I have the first Dreamscapes book and had high hopes for this one as well. It DID NOT disappoint. Lots of new information,wonderful samples and Ms.Pui-Mun Law's easy style make this book a diamond amongst pearls! I will be using this for a long time to come. What could make this book even better? Add a spiral binding for ease of use when painting! Thank you Stephanie Pui-Mun Law for making it feel like I can paint too!
I own both this book and Stephanie's first DreamScapes book of fairies, angels and mermaids. This is a great sequel! It is very inspiring both in what she chooses to paint, herself, as well as information on other ideas of mythical/magical creatures. She gives the backstories of every creature in the book and different variations of them - then shows some influential/inspiring sketches to go along with it. There are also helpful tips on painting with watercolor, other materials, and creating interesting compositions. She even includes some step-by-step watercolors in each chapter. I like Stephanie Pui-Mun Law's books, and recommend this one as well as her first DreamScapes book to anyone who likes watercolor, magical creatures, or art in general.
This is a great art book. Stephanie's writing style is friendly and fun and her ability to present art instruction in a book is amazing. The painting examples are great step by step instructions that make it clear just what to do. Her work is wonderous to look at and she shows you just how she does it. Every painting is broken down into obvious steps and very well illustrated by the text and pictures.
