This is a great book. Gordon MacKenzie is a master painter and explains things in a style that really is easy to read and follow. Why three stars? Because the contents of this book is included in his larger book, "The Complete Watercolorist's Essential Notebook". If you buy the "Complete" book you will get the "Landscapes" book too. I urge you to buy the "Complete" book - it is well written and provides a lot of good information. Don't buy both (like I did!).

great book. It is like listening to an old friend talk about painting.

I'm going to flat out say it. I love this book.
I bought Gordan's first essential watercolorist book and this landscape version has practically everything the first book had plus so much more. I don't think I'd be where I am now in watercolor if it weren't for all the tips, tricks, and sound advice. From the list of good versus bad watercolor paints, the great advice to move to 100% rag cotton paper, and countless demonstrations of crucial landscape elements like clouds, water, and land, Gordan has surpassed far and beyond all of my expectations. If you're just entering into watercolor, this book doesn't lie. It IS essential. If you're a veteran, you're still going to be pleasantly surprised at the quality of the work and the depth to which he executes it. A must have for any watercolor library.

As a fairly new watercolorist, I have purchased many, many books on the subject in an attempt to gain skills, learn techniques, expand my thinking, etc., etc. Some of those books have been helpful, but usually only a page or two of a 60-page book was exactly what I was looking for. In other words, I was disappointed! Long introduction to say that THIS watercolor book exceeded all my expectations! I am oh so happy with it; I will probably use information on every page of this one. The techniques and skills introduced are interesting and fairly easy to execute; the author provides abundant details all along the way. The book has answered so many of my questions about producing sparkling water, distant trees, various types of skies, clouds, fog, using color schemes effectively, and the technique of "fading out" (which I love). And much, much, much more. It is well worth every penny and then some.

This is a great book. I am just starting to expand my mediums and thought I would try my hand at watercoloring. This author explains everything in very simple terms so that the beginner like me can understand it. There are also exercises in the book that you can do and use to practice brush techniques. I really like this part because other books try to explain brush strokes and don't exactly show you what they mean. I plan to this book as a beginner learning tool and as I get better I will use it as a reference book.

I purchased this book used, and it arrived in excellent condition. I'd already borrowed it from my library, so I knew it was what I wanted. Lots of nice illustrations and helpful information without being overwhelming. Glad I was able to buy a copy for myself.

This book is full of wonderful information for the watercolorist. I am an adult beginner and don't expect to ever have the talent to paint for anyone except myself, but the information in this book makes me feel that at least I know a little more about what I am doing. There are many easy to read charts about paint qualites, lists of reliable pigments to look for and pigments to avoid. (I didn't know paints were made of different names and numbers, and some of these are not stable colors!) Scan the Table of Contents and you will see all the great topics that are covered (and they are covered well). This is a beautiful book to read just to look at the lovely examples of his paintings. I am really glad that I purchased this book.
I really like this book. Great info on what water color brands are best for each color/pigment. Very useful for exploring different methods of masking, sponging, salting, and dry and wet application of the medium.
