What our Editors Are Saying:
Jan Kunz's classic North Light title is back, with an updated look and great, easy-to-follow step-by-step instruction. Jan's beautiful illustrations provide excellent motivation while teaching great techniques on painting flowers, lush greenery, and even the dew drops resting on the flowers. This book was an absolute joy to work on, and once you get it in your hands, like me, you'll want to put it down only so you can pick up a brush. --Vanessa Wieland
A Word From the Author:
You learn to paint by painting, and it takes time and determination to become a fine painter. You may have heard that watercolor is difficult to handle, but with practice you will soon learn to control this beautiful medium and witness magical things happening before you.
Of course you will have bad days. Even experienced watercolorists struggle with bouts of frustration and self-doubt. So if you have a problem, be kind to yourself. You are becoming an artist. No one is born with a full-fledged art gene.
Here are a few things to remember:

- Don't compare yourself with other painters. You will never see their failures
- Try to paint when you are rested and have the time
- Don't let frustration keep you from painting
- Celebrate your victories and learn from your failures
