    Watercolour techniques must arguably be the most wide ranging of all painting mediums, from the delicate to the strong, from sketchy to photorealistic brilliance, some immediately recognisable as watercolours while others require a double look. Bewildering for an amateur, the best approach is to choose one style to go for. For me that one style is found in this little how-to book. Wonderful sketches and paintings achieved with a minimal amount of marks; how she renders the precise form of a heron Watercolour techniques must arguably be the most wide ranging of all painting mediums, from the delicate to the strong, from sketchy to photorealistic brilliance, some immediately recognisable as watercolours while others require a double look. Bewildering for an amateur, the best approach is to choose one style to go for. For me that one style is found in this little how-to book. Wonderful sketches and paintings achieved with a minimal amount of marks; how she renders the precise form of a heron in just three strokes is truly awesome. The idea, as the title suggests, is to capture the subject quickly, freely and avoiding over labouring - my kind of work - though, as Soan implies, ten minutes is just the title of the book, not a test. Another beauty of this gem - it really is - is its tiny size. Perfect for the pocket or slipping it in beside your box of paints. All that remains now is to emulate the techniques. Easier said than done, so I console myself by enjoying the many wonderful examples included by the author.

    I was interested in this book because I have seen instructional videos on watercolor by Hazel Soan. Her enthusiasm is infectious. So I searched for books written by her. I thought this book was well organized and had great examples. My biggest complaints: 1) Hazel is from the UK and some of the terminology used in the UK differs from the US. For example, she referred to using paint "neat" which I infer from context to mean the pigment from the tube rather than diluted with a lot of water.

For example, she referred to using paint "neat" which I infer from context to mean the pigment from the tube rather than diluted with a lot of water. He also referred to "not" paper, which I had to look up. Turns out its another term for cold press paper (in other words NOT hot press). 2) I bought the book in ebook format for the convenience. Unfortunately since these are 10 minute watercolors, the examples paintings are often small, and didn't show up very well in an ebook.

    The author has some really good advice, but you really have to be able to draw well to do much of what she recommends. For someone as art-challenged as I am, most of this won't work. However, she had some good advice about brushwork, color, and so on, so it was worth the read.

    Great reference book and it's small size makes it perfect for taking on the road. The organization is great as it gives tips on painting each individual type of subject as well as thourought introductory section to painting watercolours in general. Still as a beginner I found that I did not understand many concepts and ideas presented and the instructions were more often then not ambigous and I could not follow them. I will come back to it after going through a few intro watercolours books to se Great reference book and it's small size makes it perfect for taking on the road.

Still as a beginner I found that I did not understand many concepts and ideas presented and the instructions were more often then not ambigous and I could not follow them. I will come back to it after going through a few intro watercolours books to see if I can gain more than I did the first time. However the illustrations themselves are very pretty and artistic and inspiring, much more so than in other instruction books I own.
