Booklist review Dec 1, 2017
Many readers will remember using watercolor paint in childhood, but fine art watercolor is a wholedifferent thing and can feel intimidating for someone just beginning. King recognizes this and starts with aminimum of equipment, the most basic techniques, and a very common subject: flowers. Using just thethree primary colors of paint, three brushes, and one pad of watercolor paper, the novice painter can getstarted with a nominal investment in materials. Starting with a single tulip and progressing through nineincreasingly complex flowers, King teaches the reader three techniques in each painting, encouragingconfidence and mastery along the way, and adding up to a well-rounded knowledge base. For those whofind the blank page daunting, King also includes instructions for using tracing paper and pencil to transferthe outlines of her finished paintings onto watercolor paper. Terminology is explained as it comes up in”jargon buster” feature boxes, and a preview of what the reader will learn in the following project isoffered at the end of each set of instructions.— Anne Heidemann
