Just Add Watercolor - Helen Birch

Feast your eyes and feed your brain in this wonderfully artful compilation. As you delight yourself in the many pages of talented artists work, take time to read about their technique. You will learn about negative spAce, using reds, staining paper, creating movement and over painting with gauche. You will be shown how to use a subdued palette, experiment with format use template outlines and mix water color And acrylic. And thAts just a small sample. So go ahead, open it up and get inspired! This is such a handy little book. Perfect small size for easy toting around. And the information is indeed helpful. I love looking at other artists works of course. Lots of great paintings in here. But what I really enjoyed is the way they break down the information. Showing you an art piece and then describing very simply how it was done and how you can achieve it best. The index even is great, showing the picture of the art, with it's page number for easy navigation. I would say this book is great for starting out, or looking to learn more type artists. I'm sure there are artists out there who already possess all this knowledge. But for anyone looking to expand their watercolor horizons, I highly recommend this book. I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
