Reviews for Colour and Light in Water Colour
Incredible Watercolour Book
Incredible is the word I continually find myself using as I look through Jean's book at her beautiful paintings.
I received this book and sat down and read it word for word, cover to cover immediately. Then I did a couple of the exercises and painted an original of my own that I am extremely pleased with, using just a few of the tips I gleaned from this book.
One thing so special about it is that it makes the reader BELIEVE that they WILL also be able to create beautiful paintings just as Jean has, and many will I am sure.
I cannot recommend it highly enough! It will be very helpful to not only the beginner, but also the intermediate and even the established artist.
I have been dabbling at watercolour painting for many years, mostly for my own enjoyment, and I own around 300 art and watercolour books. This one in my opinion is a ''must have'' book for all watercolorists, especially those who are aspiring to "loosen up" in their painting as I am.
Jean is a very clear teacher and every tip, and there are many, is useful and valuable.
She presents several wonderful step by step demonstrations that are perfectly illustrated, each with plenty of excellent photos and clear and concise instructional text.
Her use of colour and light is phenomenal. She has already changed my painting to ''lightfilled."
Most importantly you will get the feeling that she really CARES that you learn and are able to experience the JOY of watercolour as she clearly does.
Through this book, she becomes a special friend, guiding me along. It is one of my favorite's of all time.
I will buy any book she ever writes...and any of her DVD's that might appear on the scene also.
I hope all watercolourists discover this book! by Louise Christian
