Having just recently emigrated from South Africa to New Zealand I have found this book extremely useful in that here I have a very good reference of the building style in NZ that is not found in South Africa. I originally found this book in the Library here in NZ. My first reaction was that I simply had to have a copy of this book and immediately ordered one from Amazon. Their service has always been excellent and prompt
The techniques in this book are very well explained and set out and the illustrations are professional,very crisp and very lively in colour. Anyone painting in watercolours should have one of these in his/her library for reference purposes. This book contains more than just being able to paint in rustic colours. It is a good all round reference for general painting techniques as well. I particularly like the demonstrations and the many close-ups of details that will certainly be of great help to beginners. Terry is a highly accomplished artist.
I highly recommend this book for beginners as well as those of us who have been years in the business. I am a professional art teacher and have been drawing since 1944 and painting since 1946.
