One Watercolor A Day follows the same style as Veronica Lawlor's previous book One Drawing A Day.
It's a 6-week course of 42 daily exercises on experimenting with watercolour.
The exercises are actually subjects that you can draw such as still life, landscapes, people, places, patterns and other miscellaneous ideas. If you're looking for ideas on things to draw, maybe this is the book for you.
This is not a book on watercolour techniques. The visual examples are loose and expressive. Very much like watercolour doodles, not the realistic representational kind, so there's no stress on trying to match the quality that you see. The goal is to have some fun while exploring the styles offered and suggested by the different artists featured in the book.
This is a fantastic book for beginners or artists looking to get an extra creative spark. The watercolor artwork represented in it is outstanding, but the more outstanding thing about this book are the activities. The work that is described really gets an artist thinking about how to create and more importantly how to think. It does not dwell on technique or materials which a lot of art books can do. It dwells on how to be creative everyday and how to find the best way for you as an artist to become better. I will be recommending this book to all my friends that want to learn watercolors and how to be an artist.
Watercolor is a medium with a reputation for being difficult to learn and master. "One Watercolor A Day" dispels that in its first few pages. If you;e just starting out, if you've hit a bump in your work or if you just want to branch out, order it now and spend the next month follows the author's friendly advice.. I have been painting watercolors for over a decade but this book surprises and delights me every day. It has clear, intelligent advice, inspiring examples, and a general air of "you can do it" that has jogged me in all sorts of new directions.
