Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

This is a compilation of three books by three fine British artists. Between 2000 and 2002, Collins published You Can Paint Watercolour(by Crawshaw), You Can Paint People in Watercolour(by Sharon Finmark), and You Can Paint Animals in Watercolour(by Trevor Waugh). Condensed into a single volume, the three make a good, inexpensive manual for beginners. There are basic techniques for brushstrokes, color mixing, and design, and instruction on tone, texture, pattern, and movement. Unfortunately, the emphasis on people and animals slights landscapes, still life, and architecture. Most collections will be better served by foundation courses like Elizabeth Horowitz's Watercolor for the First Time.
