Craftsy superstar and noted art instructor Ewing (Look Closer, Draw Better) truly believes that with the right inspiration, anyone can be an artist. To prove her point, Ewing’s latest how-to guide, which stresses the importance of the learning process over that of the finished product, takes advantage of the fluid nature of watercolor to help novice artists (as well as established painters in need of a slight kick in the pants to their imagination) unlock their inner creative geniuses. After providing concise and clear information about the necessary tools of the watercolor trade and how to care for them, Ewing sets forth a series of 21 intuitive lessons that are drawn from the world around us and allow users to experiment with a range of objects in the creative process.
VERDICT Written in a warm and inviting tone that is both inspirational and aspirational, this is an excellent introduction for artists of all levels to the rewarding medium of watercolor.
