The author starts by leading readers of this book through a series of examples and exercises that will introduce them to tonal drawing, colour mixing, applying washes, etc. Readers will then be ready to move on to the seven themed sections designed to help them in their specific areas of interest. Each theme starts by demonstrating the basic brushstrokes required for that subject, then moves on to a series of problem-and-solution spreads, where annotation provides guidance on how vivid depictions of each component can be achieved. After the problem-and-solution spreads, its shown how the watercolour techniques covered can be combined to produce a complete painting which all integrates all the lessons learnt. The information throughout is presented clearly with plenty of useful annotations in a handy portable size so readers can take it wherever their painting takes them.
