    Beautifully Illustrated how-to book

    Watercolor Fairies is a lavish, profusely illustrated how-to watercolor book. Authors David Riche and Anna Franklin provide detailed description of various inhabitants of the faery realms and how to create them. The book features an in-depth look at the technique of four well known fairy artists as well as art by twenty more contemporary fairy/ fantasy artists. The book starts by outlining basic watercolor tools and techniques and goes on to show how to create the fairy world and various types of fairies. Various stages of four paintings are shown, along with descriptions of each artist's painting technique. Web sites for the all the artists included (Amy Brown, Stephanie Law, James Browne, Linda Ravenscroft, Jessica Galbreth, Paulina Stuckey, Myrea Pettit, Jacqueline Collen-Tarrolly, Brigid Ashwood, Kim Turner, Meredith Dillman et al), are listed in the back of the book. Whether you are a budding artist or merely enjoy imaginative art of the faery world, Watercolor Fairies is a joy to behold!
