{Just Add Watercolor} Inspiration and Painting Techniques from Contemporary Artist

– By Helen Birch!

What a treat! First I was shocked at the size of the book, it is around 4″ X 6″! I love how tote-able the book is and it features a hard cover which is great for carrying the book around the city with me!

One of the highlights of the book is the unique index gallery in the front of the book. There are thumbnails of all the painting is the book with the page number in them offering a quick visual reference which is helpful and such an amazing quality for the book!

The main focus of the book is each artist talking about their painting, offering techniques and tips. Each painting is by a different artist and Helen features all types of water-coloring as well which is great!

Helen Ends the book with Watercolor Fundamentals, information on materials and steps on what to do next! I think it is great that she offers ideas on what steps to take after painting to get your work in galleries ect.

Helen is based out of UK and is an art lecturer, blogger and author. You can check out her blog @  http://drawdrawdraw-drawdrawdraw.blogspot.com/ and also follow her on Twitter @  https://twitter.com/drawdrawdraw and also on instagram @  https://www.instagram.com/helenbirch_drawdrawdraw/
