Review

"Kolbie puts her whole heart into what she loves, and you can tell by just looking at the pages in this book. These paintings are so detailed and gorgeous, my city-girl self just wants to dive into them like Mary Poppins."
--Alli Koch, artist and bestselling author of How to Draw Modern Florals

"Painting landscapes looks super intimidating, but Kolbie introduces landscapes in such a beautiful and fun way. This book is definitely one that should be added to your collection--it's that good!"
--Shelly Kim, lettering artist and author of Digital Hand Lettering and Modern Calligraphy

"There's just something about nature captured through watercolor, and Kolbie has done a wonderful job of creating harmony in her techniques to draw attention to the earth's elements. The bonus part is that she's here to share her brilliance so everyone can paint along, creating new life into pieces of their very own."
--Peggy Dean, bestselling author and creator of The Pigeon Letters

"Kolbie is such a wonderfully talented artist and teacher, and this book doesn't disappoint. So much detail and beautiful work and explanation!"

5.0 out of 5 stars If you want to paint loose but pretty watercolors
Reviewed in the United States on 13 October 2020
I follow Kolbie on instagram.com/thiswritingdesk. Her watercolors are loose and colorful. When she said she was writing a book, I ordered immediately.

So, totally disregarding the instructions, I jumped right in, to a full painting, as I wanted to see how that was going to fit my needs. I have attached my first try. I found her instructions to be very concise. What I really liked though, is that I live in an arid climate, and I have a huge issue trying to keep my paper wet, while trying to do a wet-in-wet wash. Kolbie's instruction is in bite size steps. What a difference it makes not getting frustrated over my paint drying too soon.

I went back, and then started from the beginning, and her techniques give different options for painting a tree or a mountain - not just one size fits all. I plan on using these as drills, when I don't have time to do a full painting, and to get more practice with the different methods. Many of them can be little stand alone artworks too.

This book will not tell you how to paint photo-realistic paintings, but it is not intended to. I paint for myself, and this book is helping me enjoy the process.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific book for the watercolor painter that could be you !
Reviewed in the United States on 14 October 2020
I ordered this on pre order and waited anxiously for it to be in my little old hands. I received it on my 71st birthday and it was the day before leaving for a 5 day camping trip ! Grabbed this gem & my art bag and off I
we went. The instructions are clear, the practice is fun and most of all, the sweet author knows how to instruct. The book and my paints gave me many hours of fun and a feeling of accomplishment (while hubby fished but only caught ONE the whole trip !) I ended up with 3 lovely little paintings and a renewed sense of confidence. Best watercolor book I have purchased .. I can highly recommend this book !

Reviewed in the United States on 15 December 2020
Okay, this book is amazing. First of all, the book itself is beautiful. Even the introductory chapters that discuss technique and color theory are illustrated by Kolbie herself (and not some computer generated color wheel — that part is in watercolor too!) Each section also has a fun little quote, this was one of my favorite little touches added in.

There’s some really incredible info at the beginning and the rest of the book is filled to the brim with exercises. These exercises include extremely detailed step-by-step instructions. What usually loses me with art tutorial books is jumping too far between step A to step B and so forth. Not with this book!

This is the perfect book to pick up as a beginner and create some really incredible paintings in just a few hours work. Especially since if you’re follow the recommendations, you really don’t need many supplies at all to get started!

If you’re don’t already, definitely follow the author on Instagram, seeing her work her magic in video form is just as amazing. But being able to have a tangible version of her instructions where I can read over a step several times before moving on is WELL worth the price.

Overall, incredible quality. Thorough, but not dull at all. Beautiful book. Extremely user friendly, easy to understand. Awesome value. Would make a perfect gift for anyone wanting to develop their creative side but might be a little intimidated to try.
