Product description

Review

June 08 People often want to take up painting when they retire and have more time. Others start sooner, once their kids are grown and in school. The drawing part of painting can be hard for beginners - enough of an obstacle so they give up or never get past painting by numbers. My friends who paint have always had a natural ability. They drew as children. I don't have that at all. Now two new books promise to make watercolor painting easier for beginners by following what I call an old-but-new approach. The "Ready to Paint" series from Search Press in England is designed so that novice painters can pick up a brush and create appealing paintings with easy-to-follow tracings. The tracings can be reused. The idea is that you gain confidence as your hand-eye coordination is trained, by following the tracings, while you have some pleasing results to motivate you to keep trying. "Watercolour Flowers" by Wendy Tait has nine reusable tracings to pull out. "Watercolour Landscapes" by Terry Harrison has six reusable tracings to pull out. Both are to be published in June. The artists explain how to compose a painting with simple instructions and tips. Both Tait and Harrison are authors as well as artists. * A Good Age *

I like this simple book. The vellum pages are perfect to transfer images.
So far I tried only one painting. Took me longer than expected, but I really enjoyed the process. There are seems to be some gaps in steps. It was not a problem to me though.
I saw a lady painting first time in her life from this book and it turned out nice.
I think you need to know a basic watercolor knowledge if you wish to make your painting beautiful.

Reviewed in the United States on 6 July 2019
Many of the art books I've seen repeat and repeat basics without much inspiration to go beyond. They often include a minimum of significant artwork and usually little or no suggestion of how that art was accomplished.
However, while this artist-author does mention the basics, she seems to assume the reader is ready to move to the next level. The art is exceptional for this type of publication and consistently leads the practitioner to the next step. The author is not stingy with the step-by-step instructions, and the practice becomes reality in living color. It is a fun journey into floral painting in watercolor.
