Powerful Watercolor Landscapes by Catherine Gill is a book on painting in watercolor, supposedly to create “powerful” paintings.
2 out of 10 stars. There was nothing really special about this book and all of the photos within were of really poorly-done watercolors. I was very disappointed that this book was published. Some painters have talent and some do not. These are not beautiful paintings and her advice is just the basics.
Here are a couple of photos from inside the book. The first in each pair is the photo that inspired her to paint the landscape. The second is her painting. This is how the entire book goes and every “finished” watercolor looks unfinished. I could not even make out what some of them were supposed to be. 🙁
