I read this twice: May 2000 and March 2007; then I did all of the painting exercises in the book between February and April 2007. This is an excellent book for beginners in watercolor, with lessons that go step-by-step without skipping any essential basic skills.
I am doing the exercise painting in this book, step by step. If it's possible, I would like to post my awful paintings and what I learn from this book. I consider this book as an excellent introduction for watercolor beginners.

This book presupposes drawing skills I'm not sure I have. But it has a helpful description of which brushes to use and how to use them, how to prepare watercolor for painting, and the various basic techniques. Now all I have to do is make time to try it all out.
