    "Don't miss out on chance encounters with unexpected beauty."

    The books begins with sage advice and keeps you inspired through the end. Joyce Hicks encourages you to record the things and moments you find every day that inspire you. She also stresses the importance of slowing down and enjoying the simple beauty around you, while also providing the detail necessary to accomplish a beautiful landscape in watercolor.

    You will find information on brushes and paints in addition to valuable insight into Joyce Hicks' techniques. I find that her paintings appear complex and invoke true feelings of serenity and nostalgia - how does she do it? I am reminded of Zoltan Szabo who wrote my first watercolor book (Landscape Painting in Watercolor) and also had an extremely realistic and approachable teaching style.
