In this extraordinary book, Alvaro Castagnet shows how it is possible to transcend the principles of technique and take painting to a higher plateau -- where passion is awakened every time a brush is picked up.
When you paint with passion, when you are able to reach within yourself, then you can communicate the most genuine aspects of the world through your eyes.
Once you can combine the key concepts of watercolor with a powerful message then you are more likely to succeed -- especially when you paint from the heart!
