I am new to watercolor & this is the first book that I’ve read on the subject.

This book is full of valuable information & positive encouragement. Leslie writes clearly and with enthusiasm. There is a short reading for everyday of a year, grouped by topic. Illustrations include some of her watercolor artwork. This is a book that could be used as a textbook for home school purposes.
