Jeanne Carbonetti does beautiful, vibrant water colors and I enjoyed the many illustrations of her art throughout the book. Bizarre was finding a squashed fly between pages 14/15 (??) which I removed and found a hard time putting someone who would enjoy her art together with someone who would pick up a beautiful library book and kill and leave a fly in it for someone else to find. But I digress.... I believe the artists is very well intentioned but there is too much technique in the form of rules and "how to" and little exploratory, gentle lessons to follow.

This book has some useful techniques, but the writing itself can be a little grating. Read with good humour.
