Book Review: The Watercolor Course You’ve Always Wanted

I have never been a big fan of the watercolor medium but decided to check out The Watercolor Course You’ve Always Wanted by Leslie Frontz with an open mind to see if I could be won over. The short answer is no but I did enjoy flipping through the book and think it will be very useful for those who want to pursue watercolors further.

The book touts itself as being perfect for beginners and experienced artists alike and it does have a lot of basic information like how to choose the brushes and tools and how to clean up. Professionals may be a little let down but overall the information seems pretty helpful.

Out of the dozens of paintings showcased throughout the book, only the ones on the back cover were mildly impressive. Any one of those would have made a better cover than the one that was used. Again, maybe its just me but I can’t get excited about this medium.

3 stars.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
