My favorite part of this book was ooing and ahhing over the author's AMAZING depictions of light in the painting he features as examples and demos. They are impressive, people. Sadly, I wasn't too fond of the subjects/compositions he chose (even though I understand why he did), but I do want to try the demo of the cover's firework scene.

Although this book provides a brief intro to watercolor painting, such as preparation, supplies, techniques, as well as basic elements of light and art; this is not a beginners book. The techniques are explained concisely, again, assuming the reader has a previous understanding of the media. The painting’s instructions serve as a window into the artist’s general process, not a step by step instructions. It’s a great book with good insight and beautiful paintings as examples.
