Lindsay's approach to teaching watercolor emerges from somewhere between the traditional art world and the deep, mystic spaces of the self. In her words, "Watercolor likes to be danced with, not controlled." Relearn the playfulness of childhood, she argues; abandon the constant worry of whether the work is "good" or done the "right" way. If you concentrate on the processAthe experience of paintingAquality will emerge on its own. There are several fine books on watercolor from the rational school, like Jack Reid's Watercolor Basics: Let's Get Started (LJ 12/98). Lindsay's unique work will strike a chord with many beginning artists who respond to a more personal, even spiritual tone. So handsomely designed that it's hard to resist leafing through it, this holistic tome is highly recommended.
