It's fun reading because of the variety of works, which are broken up into such categories as abstractions, animals, machines, the sky, travel, and landscapes. There are sixty-five watercolorists represented, including Nita Engle, Judi Betts, Frank Webb, Janet Fish, Pat Deadman, and Jeanne Dobie.

The Artistic Touch: Volumes 1 & 2

The first volume of The Artistic Touch is a "color explosion" of artworks by Chris Unwin and 64 other outstanding nationally prominent contemporary artists (mostly in the water color medium). The second volume showcases the artworks of 91 superlative artists whose paintings will inspire practicing artists and delight art lovers everywhere. Taken together, this 2 volume set provides an exquisite visual experience for the novice artist, the experienced artist, and the armchair art connoisseur featuring the full range of Artistic expressions in water color and mixed media, from the realistic, to the impressionistic, to abstract subject matter, and the thoughts and inspiration of the individual artists. The artworks themselves range from the very serious to the humorous, from still life to dynamic compositions. The Artistic Touch is a two volume set that will enhance any private, academic, or public library art book collection. -- Midwest Book Review
