Her paintings capture the essence of fantasy perfectly. I hadn't done any artwork in a while, but just looking at her art made me want to run to my watercolors right away. I've used watercolors before, but no one ever really taught me how. This book showed me several new tips I'm itching to try out. I drew two fairies already, and it's so fun! I definitely recommend getting this book.
