paints a lot, January 22, 2008 (view all comments by paints a lot)
This is one of the most beautiful watercolor books I have. John Pike has a wonderful way of simplifying the complex--both in his paintings and also in the words he chooses to explain about his life as an artist and his working methods for the beautiful artwork in his book. There are 13 demonstrations and then a gallery of his paintings along with explanations of how he approached the painting. There is also an interview with John Pike at the beginning of the book. The demonstrations are entrancing, and Pike does not hold any "secrets" back from the students. It is as if John Pike is standing beside you explaining to you step-by-step how to paint his painting. The paintings are loose, with lots of light and contrast. It's a wonderful book that ever watercolor student should hold on to.
