In this book Stephanie Pui Mun Law shares her knowledge and mastery in creating wonderful watercolor images. She covers the basics in art and specifically in watercolors, and then offers a series of practical hands on walk throughs using several of her wonderful images as templates.
The thing I find the most interesting about this book is the way Stephanie designed it. Instead of grouping all the instructional part at the beginning and then showing the step by steps, she has used a very dynamic approach in which she basically submerges you in the practical aspects of watercolors almost immediately. Each chapter is based on a special character (the sun, the moon, the witch…) and in each chapter she talks about character design, one or two important basic concepts (as light or skin colors), has one or two myths and proceeds to one or two walk throughs. As the chapters progress she covers more difficult concepts, making the learning gradual and interesting.
I can say that I would highly recommend this book. It is absolutely wonderful and very entertaining, full of interesting tips for using watercolors. If you purchase it through her website the book will be autographed and come with a print of the cover image!
