Our customer reviews

This tiny book fits into a little pocket on my travelling watercolour kit, so I can always refer to it very easily. As a beginner, I find many of Hazel Soan's examples and explanations of materials and techniques helpful. A fairly wide range of subjects is covered, giving plenty of motivation to get started on something simple, quick yet effective. The skill and experience of the author shines through the text and images, in both the craft and the art of making watercolours.show more
