I loved this book! You can learn a lot of tips and techniques about painting on location in a very relaxed and detailed way. The painting process is very well explained and wont leave you wondering about skipped steps like in other books, This makes it exceptionally good for beginners. It teaches by example, with step-by-step demonstrations of painting on site.
The focus is on the foundational steps to painting en plein air (for both pastoral and urban landscapes) and creating with watercolors in general. Some of the topics covered are: sketching, watercolor techniques, limited color palette, capturing light and mood, washes, perspective and painting people
I really liked the way Iain Stewart explains things and I am grateful that he shares his knowledge without holding back anything. He is a great teacher and would highly recommend this book if you want to have a smooth start in your painting journey.
