Lovesome!

Really, really enjoyed this book. It is a beautiful overview of Potter's art and the text is simple and telling without getting in the way of the artwork.

This was pure enjoyment strolling through the pages and seeing familiar paintings and drawings and many I wasn't familiar with. Oh how I would have loved being friends with Beatrix Potter.

I learned alot about Beatrix Potter....and found I like her landscapes alot too. Not only was she a very creative story teller but a wonderful and detailed artist too. I did not know she used a maginfining glass to create some of her insects, flowers etc. Love her art and her books.

The book had short fascinating facts about Beatrix's background on how she became such an accomplished artist. It is a decent taste of both the work she did for her noted children's book illustrations as well as things such as scientific illustrations.

most of us only know her "Little Books" art, she was an encredable artist and meticulous naturalist.

Spectacular! Actually, I will never really finish this book. I use it as a reference in some of my art projects. Potter was a magnificent watercolorist. I use her works for guidance and form.

A wonderful journey through Beatrice Potter's art. It was an easy read, but a solid look into her work and development as an artist.
