Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Painting ocean and wilderness landscapes requires a special touch. Without systematic instruction, developing that touch can be an arduous and sometimes a futile task. Jude Siegel's copiously illustrated step-by-step guide introduces budding artists to useful techniques for painting natural settings. Siegel's informal instructions are reinforced by the beauty and unforced craft of her own stunning Pacific Northwest watercolors.
Kitsap Sun
"This gorgeously illustrated new offering from Portland's Timber Press helps nature lovers consider their surroundings in different and wonderful ways. This is a wonderful book!"

—Barbara Lloyd McMichael, Kitsap Sun, September 17, 2006
