I've started learning to watercolor and love working with watercolor pencils. Unfortunately, most books on watercolor painting have a paragraph, at most, devoted to watercolor pencils. I finally found this book at the library and it is just what I needed. Great tips. I think I will have to get my own copy!

I just love Cathy Johnson's approachable, sensible, and inspiring books! This had a handful of demos to try but not all of them had step-by-step instructions which was disappointing, but it is still useful and great fun to look at her artwork within.

Stupid cover, but this was a very helpful book. The most helpful thing was the many pics of paintings done on different papers and with different techniques.
