Format: Paperback
Even though manga style isn't the style I work in, I have found this book to be a wonderful reference.

I've often found that the best books on watercolor technique aren't the generic ones, but ones concerning a certain subject. Meredith's technique is soft, subtle and rich, a type not usually represented in the average watercolor book. Best of all, she isn't imposing her style onto the reader, but offers a jumping off point. How-to art books so very often merely show how to paint like the author, very rarely does one come along that teaches inspiration and how to find it in practical ways.

Even if an artist is not quite up to Meredith's drawing ability, this book is worth going through for its ideas and techniques. This is especially good for aspiring young artists.

I ordered these books just before christmas & receive them in time for christmas. My daughter is a new artist (and getting better) that needed new books to show her to draw things a little easier, & new ideas too. She loves the ideas it gives her & ways to do things too. A good book for her startup collection.

I purchased this book for my daughter last year, she was 8 years old and she loves it! She has a talent for drawing and watercolor and has used this book to help her tune into her art! One of the fairies she created using this book won her 1st place in the MN State Fair! She uses this book everyday to reference ideas like eyes, color and composition!I would recommened it for any one who wants to learn the art of manga!

This book is great and it came in pristine condition, the illustrations are beautiful, it goes over the basics of water colors and the fairies are beautiful. I do wish that it was a little longer though and had more in it but for the price it is perfect and suits my beginners needs quite well I can't wait to try out some of these watercolors and add my own sort of illustrations and twist to them. I feel like this book gives you a great idea of how to layer watercolors to get the final image you are looking for.

Nice book has a lot of different types of fairies. Teaches you about watercolor and how to layer it to turn out nice. Doesn't teach you how to draw the fairies if you are looking for a drawing book. Does teach you what to base a fairy off of and how to create your own

This is another for my art library collection. It really helped me put some fantasy into
my painting. I'm now on the quest for more of this type...

Got this book for my wife. She is interested to drawing and painting fairies and mermaid in watercolor. This book has many excellent step by step instruction with the completed sketch to start with. I give you some instruction on how to make the face and design the body. However, it does not tell you who she developed her compositions. For a cheap book, it is worth the money. However, another book could be made on how to develop compositions and create new background and clothing for this ladies.

Watercolors are new for me but the book tells you exactly what is needed. There are not a lot of supplies needed and they are very inexpensive.
