I first purchased the 10 minute watercolours Gem edition then followed all the others and then her YouTube vdo's they all demonstrate her mastery of the medium, this book I bought as a kindle book and is a condensed version of watercolour wisdom from a master exponent of the art A must for every watercolourist.
This is one book where I did follow my own advice (I've bought some real rubbish on the web). I saw it in Waterstones and had a good look at it before ordering it online (for half the price). It’s complementary to my other watercolour books by Brenda Swenson and is aimed at a really low level painting structure without too much fine detail. It’s excellent and at just the right level for me. It’s a hard cover book, 20cm by 16cm and has 112 pages. A great little reference.
I bought this book some time ago and loved it from the outset. Written with a passion that transmits to the reader and makes every painting day a new adventure. I have learned a tremendous amount from this inspiring book.
What you should know, what you should need, good depth of knowledge needed to use colour, and putting brush to paper. Shows the thinking needed from her experience as a teacher of painting, and the questions beginners or those who know a little bit about this work. She is the best. I like her relaxed style. If I wanted great detail, I can take a picture by my camera, and hang it up. I like the idea that a little less detail makes the brain of the viewer work or imagine. It makes the subject more personal.
What a little gem this book really is. Hazel Soan is a remarkable artist who does know her craft and makes it look so easy. I finished reading the book in less than 30 minutes, and then spent another 30 just to study and admire her sample paintings. I want to copy them as they are all so gorgeous. Thank you Hazel...
