"After 25 years of teaching thousands of novice watercolorists the simple methods contained in this book, I firmly believe that anyone willing to follow the directions and do the world cannot fail to achieve a successful picture. If I can do it, so can you." - Jack Reid In this beginner-friendly guide, Jack Reid will show you the hows of watercolor painting. He covers it all in clear, easy-to-understand terms - beginning with what tools and materials you should buy to get off to a good, affordable start. You'll find simple, step-by-step exercises to help you:

  • Control your brush with ease
  • Master the four basic watercolor techniques - the flat wash, the graded wash, the wet-in-wet and the dry-brush
  • Take the "Five Steps to a Painting" - step-by-step demonstration guide you from one color to five, to make your paintings "sing" with color
  • Use photography and photocopying to create paintings inspired by life
Then put everything you've learned into action by following along with seven painting projects. Before you know it, you'll be creating your own beautiful watercolor paintings!

From Library Journal:

One might reasonably ask, "Why another basic watercolor book in an already packed market?" Simply put, most books fall far short?the beginner's book is perhaps the most difficult to write. Reid has taught more than 10,000 students during his distinguished career and has a unique understanding of how to transmit his knowledge. He neither assumes too much nor condescends. This is among a few such books?Mary Whyte's Watercolor for the Serious Beginner (Watson-Guptill, 1997) is another?that can be highly recommended.
