Artist Marcia Moses brings knowledge, conviction, and zeal to her painting, and her watercolors of flowers, seascapes, and landscapes capture their beauty and mood. With her sensitive and intelligent instruction, any beginner can accomplish this artistic magic, too. Using her own exquisite work as examples, she guides novices through all the tools and materials of the trade (brushes, paper, paint); teaches every basic stroke; explains how to shape an effective composition and create an eye-pleasing design; reveals how to work with color; and--most important--helps newcomers feel confident enough to draw on their own creativity to produce truly personal paintings.

What other medium has the delicate power or the ethereal resonance of watercolor? It appears so easy to do, but at second glance, it looks so difficult to do. Beginners eager to try their hand should take Moses as their tutor. She sensitively guides readers through a complete starter course in watercolor. She begins with information on tools and materials, including paper, paint, and brushes; then she explains the seven elements of design. After that, Moses discusses color and various time-honored techniques. Readers are then directed step-by-step through a series of projects, of increasing difficulty, to apply what they have learned so far. And for inspiration and sheer enjoyment, she provides at the end a gallery of her own paintings. The entire book is beautifully designed for easy eye movement over its rich pages. An excellent place to start. Brad Hooper
