One of the world's best watercolourists has produced a reference manual suitable for anyone with a thirst for improving their skills in watercolour - whether amateur or professional. Robert Wade starts by outlining the fundamentals, then gets down to the nitty-gritty of the basics of good watercolour painting. There are in-depth discussions and examples of tone values, visioneering, drawing, glazing and color, focus and edge control, and subject skill building. Demonstrations, exercises and self-critique questionnaires consolidate each section's major learning points. There are also troubleshooting tips, knock-out presentations that make complex ideas simple - and plenty of advice from Robert's years of accumulated knowledge.

So nice to see a book that does not lie about it's contents on the cover. All images inside the book are by the same artist and are of the same quality as depicted on the cover. Unlike most art books that are written by poor artists who display better artists' works within.

Please bring in more art technique books of this calibre, instead of artbooks written by poor painters with paintings done by others.
