I saw this book at a craft store and figured I could get it for less at Amazon. I saved about a dollar.

Since I'm just starting with watercolor, it is nice to find this kind of project book that allows me to get some experience with the medium. This book will definitely help beginners get started and help others improve their skills.

At thirty-two pages and several pictures on each page, I wonder if it can really be called a book LOL. If you are a beginner like me, a book with more details would be much more helpful. I've been enjoying books by Alwyn Crawshaw and Elizabeth Horowitz. They take the time to explain supplies and basic brush strokes.

Bought this just to brush up on skills so I could teach a class. There are helpful ideas in here but you have to have a little bit of a painting background to undrestand everything.
