About the Author:

Cathy Johnson is an artist/writer/naturalist. She is also the author of North Light's Watercolor Pencil Magic.

From School Library Journal:

YA-- While excellent steps give a structured itinerary of watercolor painting for novice watercolorists, the tremendous variety of colorful objects and textures provide a reference for more advanced artists as well. However, although all of the parts for producing a good watercolor are here, there is little discussion about catching the spirit or feeling in a completed work. For this reason, this book could best be used as a resource for learning technique and not as a single source on the medium of watercolor.
