I haven't done much painting in years and having this great book has truly inspired me to get out and dust off the box of paints and brushes and start again! What a wonderful book! I consider myself more advanced, and yet it was good for me to read this book and re connect and familiarize again with the aspects from the beginning. The book is broken into sections with a definitive timeframe of 30 days. If you stick hard with this book, you can expect to see amazing results after the 30 day period as each day is a building block. Frankly, this is THE best book I have ever seen on watercolor and basics. It is a teaching tool designed to bring out the artist in you! I have several books on this subject and all will be easily replaced by this concise edition. Excellent for beginners and like myself, persons wanting to recapture and revive their talents! I received a copy from Blogging For Books in exchange for this review. I honestly would not hesitate to recommend this book!
