Jenny Rainey’s 30 day guide to watercolor is a great book for beginners or anyone who would love to pick up where they may have left of after an introductory/high school course to painting.
For me, it has been 25 years since my high school art class which covered many mediums. Although I have dabbled with watercolor here and there over the years, I have truly never taken a formal class in watercolor and I’ve always been curious.
This book introduced me to new concepts and theory exercises which were quite foreign to me such as blending and shading. Some of the concepts were easy to understand, and some of them harder, especially with just reading but not practicing along which may help. I’ve always just jumped right into painting and have not taken the time to train my hand in practicing brush strokes and blending colors. I look forward to practicing the 30 day lessons and seeing how the lessons change how I view color and painting.
This would be a great book for anyone interested in a DYI guide to watercolor painting.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for my honest review.
