Groves's motto for this book, meant for experienced watercolorists eager to take their work to new creative levels, is: "Paint what you feel, not just what you see, and you'll begin to see the world in a different light." It contains experiments with freeform collages, found imagery, and multidimensional techniques. As Groves demonstrates, one can paint with a leaf (or a sponge, or a string) instead of with a brush; further, a painting can begin, not on a blank sheet, but over an abstract acrylic background. A fun sampler of techniques for the aspiring amateur (who might also like Lee Boynton and Linda Gottlieb's Painting the Impressionist Watercolor); recommended for public libraries.
