Table of Contents

Meet Sara

Chapter One: Jump Right In!
Get to know your supplies and start experimenting right away. The focus is on playing with the paint and getting comfortable. Learn to manipulate it but sometimes just sit back and watch what happens.

Chapter Two: Surprise Yourself
Experiment further with watercolour through a series of exercises designed to take the fear out of the blank page. The ideas will help the reader make those scary first marks and hopefully fill an entire sketchbook.

Chapter Three: Best Friends
Learn to incorporate different media and supplies into watercolour painting.

Chapter Four: Frameable Creations
This chapter will guide the reader through creating something they will be proud to show off.

Chapter Five: Paint on Everything
The look of watercolour is so beautiful; why stop with just paper? This chapter will show you how you can incorporate watercolour into a variety of home décor and craft projects to give as gifts or keep for yourself. But be careful you may want to brush paint on every surface in sight!

I was excited when I got this book as I wanted to learn about this topic but didn't really know where to start. I am only half way through the book and loving it. It is great for a learner starting by teaching you about how the colours work together and how to get your different depths of colour. So far I have found this book very unrestricted in how you put things together not too concerned about being perfect or exactly the same as the subject. Which is great for building confidence of those learning to do water colouring. I love how they break down the topics into different approaches from play, to prompt where you are learning a technique and then project where you put what you have learned in the topic. So far I am learning to build up layers. I love the colours in this book and the approach to teaching as it tells you not to worry and even gets you to make up your own animal. Good book for a learner or someone looking to get back into using their water colours.


I love the book because it's easy to follow and very well presented. It's the perfect book for beginners or someone who hasn't painted for a long time like myself and my wife says she love to use it for ideas for her crafts too
