I read this right after Mary Whyte's book "watercolor for serious beginners." It took Whytes technical explanations and opened a world of fantasy.

There is no doubt that it is a beautiful book but I just wish there were more step-by step instructions and complete intricate paintings to work on. It almost seemed half finished at times.
