Watercolor For Life!

DISCLOSURE: I have Thankfully received Just Add Watercolor for free from Blogging For Books, provided that I give an honest review 

 Hello Loverlies! Just Add Watercolor by Helen Birch is an awesome little book. When I say little I mean how small the size is, and not that there isn't enough pages to read/look through. This book fits great on any end table/bedside table/coffee table, so that you can just grab it and look at the pictures any chance you get. There are plenty of paintings in this book to help give you inspiration and show you different ways of painting. The types of paintings that are shown in this book are Traditional Watercolor, Gouache, Digital, Mixed Media, Other-Water Based Media, and Non Paper Media. On each page there is information and tips about the painting that is on that page. I love how they have tips in this book, it will help me know more of what I can do whilst painting. It is a great book to own if you are a painter or even if you like learning about it. If you are interested in purchasing this book click HERE. Have a Blessed Day! 

 Synopsis From Goodreads: 

 Featuring 200 of the best works of young, modern watercolor painters, paired with bite-sized painting tips and art instruction, Just Add Watercolor gives aspiring artists access to information about--and examples of--top work in the medium. Artist and instructor Helen Birch breaks down each painting by techniques, subject matter, and tools, providing art enthusiasts and painters with a one-stop resource and gallery of the best that modern watercolor has to offer. Its small trim size with one painting per spread provides a bold, but user-friendly alternative to traditional, process-heavy painting instruction texts. Just Add Watercolor shines the spotlight on featured paintings, while still giving readers all the insights needed to get started painting in this popular medium.
