A new concept

by June on Jul 8, 2010

I have read this and found it interesting. I have yet to try the technique due to other commitments but am eager to do so. I liked the varied situations and works covered.

Her talent is striking

by picturguy on Oct 22, 2009

A book to show you why this artist is so acclaimed in the watercolor fraternity. Her style of painting is freewheeling, and at the same time she applies details with great care. This book is a must have, you will enjoy her style of painting even though you might not be inclined to make it your own. I have many books on watercolor, but none that I enjoy viewing as much as this one.

Nita's way

by watercolorist on Oct 30, 2008

This is the best book on the market for learning to put atmosphere in a watercolor landscape. I just came out of her last workshop she will ever do and I've read the book. Remarkable artist in so far as she invented most of the techniques that other artists like Roland Roycraft claim as their own. He took classes from her. The title is a litlle misleading because watercolors don't paint themselves until you give them a little nudge. Then all the colors start blending together as the artist jumps in and out to help them work together. But when it works, theres nothing like it for atmospheric effects as light filters though the trees you've created. I highly recommend this to any watercolorist who wants to free up their work and has the fortitude to pour paint on paper.
