Library Journal Review

Szabo continues to be one of the masters in the field of watercolors. Born in Hungary, he teaches seminars that have influenced artist in the United States, Canada, Europe, and the Middle East. With this book, he adds another important volume to ten previous highly popular books, including his classic Zoltan Szabo!s 70 Favorite Watercolor Techniques (LJ 3/15/96). Here, he briefly surveys tools and techniques before guiding beginners through 15 step-by-step demonstrations of trees, mountains, and rocks. He imparts color-mixing theory and techniques for texture and mood, pulling it all together into finished, realistic landscapes. Highly recommended for all collections (c) Copyright 2010.
