"Your package arrived today and the book is absolutely sensational. You should be very proud of it. I had not imagined that it would be so full of great information, particularly for someone like me who is a student of watercolour...When I opened it I sat down and read it cover to cover... It is truly engrossing, and I intend to show it to both my teacher and classmates next week...Top quality information. Top quality design and reproduction. Great execution all around. Thank you Alice."

Using her own exquisite watercolour paintings, Alice shows us how she effectively engages the viewers. This easy to understand gem is ideal for a dabbling artist, professional artist, or anyone wanting to have a better understanding of what makes a painting great."
