This book is very good to help you create the right mood for your painting. It does not provide step-by-step instructions but a general idea of how you could create a scene.
The only thing is that you will need to buy exactly the colors used in the instructions but I will use my imagination and improvise. If you are looking for DETAILED instructions this book is not for you. This is more like a general guide of how you can achieve perspective, a rippled water effect, trees and things like that.
In the first section it shows you how to: use media, combine color for mood, create fairyland weather and seasons and painting flowers and foliage, etc.
Section two deals with cropping, scaling, foreshortening, light and shade, perspective and ready to draw fairies, homes and neighborhoods, etc.
The third section covers the inventing of your own fairyland. It shows you techniques in order to create: leaves, foliage, trees, flowers, fruits, stones, water, underwater and reflections, walls and fences, castles, thrones, rainforests, ready to draw environments, etc.
The last section gives you ready to trace and draw figures and artwork done by other artists
This book is a must have if you want to create your own fairyland, and it's a wonderful reference and source of inspiration.
About the "how to draw" part- I felt like it's a book of ideas but not for a begginer like me. The drawings inside are beautiful but in a very high level for a begginer. I will get back to it after I will get some practice with base fairies drawings.
But even if you don't want to draw at all, I think this is a beautiful book to learn with about Fairyland.
I personally doesn't like the final results, since they are not painting to me. However, that is just a personal taste so I still keep 5 stars for this book.
