This is a great introduction to watercolor. It breaks everything down, explains methods and materials, but it gives simple hints and techniques that will make your paintings look advanced. You will be very pleased with the results if you just go for it and have fun!
I AM a complete beginner and felt that this was good in telling you what supplies you need etc. BUT they, early on, talk about perspective drawing, one and two point and other "scary" things. It's probably me but I need to be "step by stepped" into this.
Good intro...although I THOUGHT I was buying another similarly named book, "Watercolours for Absolute Beginners" which I actually prefer (and did buy, ultimately, also). Great how-to's to get us novices up and making a start at watercolor painting.
I am in the process of working my way step by step through this book. I am learning a lot. Mark Willenbrink is a good communicator. His words and his illustrations are fairly easy to follow. The dvd that came with it was helpful but too short. I think some of it was missing. I am an absolute beginner and I mostly understand it.
