Reviewed in the United States on 11 December 2018
...she mixed up Raw Umber, which is a cold greenish-brown, with Burnt Umber, a warm reddish brown. If you use her color picks, you will get weird (and ugly) results. Shame on the author and the copy editor. I'll bang the layout person too--he or she should know the difference between the two colors and should have brought it to someone's attention. (Being a layout person myself, I've done this often when I've recognized an error that was passed over during early production).

Color mix-up aside, the book is kind of sweet. The illustrations have been simplified to enable beginners to at least approach the results with some degree of success. However, I would strongly recommend tracing the drawings and transferring them to external sheets. The paper isn't terrible, but it's not 100% cotton, so it's not very forgiving. If you mess up the original drawing, you can't fix it.

Reviewed in the United States on 22 August 2018
Today I received Watercolor with Me In The Forest book by Dana Fox! It is even better than I Imagined it would be! I really like the simple yet beautiful color palette. Each piece requires just a few watercolors, with very useful and easy to follow instructions. The illustrations are inspirational and well thought out. I will update my review and add photos after I've completed a few of the projects!
As promised - here is my update! Updating to 5 stars! I am really enjoying this Forest themed watercolor book. Dana’s projects are uncomplicated and easy to follow. Some projects are easy and some give me the opportunity practice new techniques. For example: the fawn was a welcome challenge to practice painting fur. The beginning of the Painting Fur section provides easy to follow practice instructions before you begin painting one of the many forest animals. And there’s lots of other wonderful forest creatures in this section for you to continue practicing painting fur.
