Awesome work. Review by Betty Marion

This book is very informative as well as having amazing paintings and photographs. You think that you could be right there and pick up the object or walk into the painting because they look so real.

Paint Amazing Watercolors from Photographs Review by Cheryl Todd Shergold

What an amazing and gifted artist. I appreciated Henry sharing his knowledge with the rest of us. I find myself constantly picking this book up to read...again and again. As an avid North Light Publications reader - this is by far one of the best resources I have aquired. Sign me up for his next book! I sure hope there will be many more from Henry W. Dixon!
