I own both of Harriet de Winton's books. I'm very happy with them.
Well worth the price.

Now for the contents …. The informative first section of the book is ideal for beginners to watercolour. It starts with a detailed list of materials needed and explains the basic watercolour techniques. There are even lessons in brush strokes to practise. All the projects inside this book follow the same structure whether you are painting an insect, bird, animal or plant. You are given a list of which size brushes you need and the colour paints to use. You then follow the steps from first sketching the subject with simple shapes, adding the details, to then applying the watercolour. Each step is precisely explained making it very easy to follow. There is a very interesting section at the end of the book explaining how to create compositions and patterns and Harriet also makes reference to some of the art movements and styles that have influenced her work.
In conclusion, this is a superior book for any watercolour artist. It does not matter if they are like me, at the beginning of their artistic journey or if they are a more experienced painter. It’s as if Harriet De Winton is with you, holding your hand through every project.
