All the main painting media are represented - watercolour, pastels, oils and acrylics - aiming to ensure variety and interest. In addition, the book features a wide range of different styles of painting by many well-known artists, including some HarperCollins authors such as Alwyn Crawshaw, Linda Birch, Ron Ranson, Ann Blockley and Wendy Jelbert.
Twelve professional artists offer helpful solutions to many of the most common problems, while excellent illustrations help to ensure that the advice is not only practical but also inspiring. Numerous topics are addressed, including: finding new subjects, working from sketches, mixing watercolors effectively, and portraying difficult subjects, such as light and fabric.

Art Magazines in the USA
My experience of subscribing to American Art Magazines
a cautionary tale for non-USA subscribers
I used to subscribe to American Art Magazines - The Artist's Magazine, Pastel Journal and American Artist. In the end I stopped all my subscriptions because of the very long delays between publication and their arrival in the UK.
I wasn't alone in being dissatisfied as there were regular complaints raised by artists in art forums about delays in despatch.
I came to the conclusion that certain American Art magazine publishers had very poor quality control over delivery as promises to improve never actually materialised in improved delivery.
It may have changed - but I suspect not. Of course American Artist is no longer published as the company went bust and was taken over by F&W Publications - who publish The Artist's Magazine in 2012!
One option - which was very slow in arriving - is to subscribe to a digital edition of a magazine. I tried that with F&W publications as well but the whole process fell apart either at payment or at the download.
It would be nice to think that not all magazines behave in the same way - I certainly don't have experience of all of the US magazines.
One advantage of subscribing via Amazon is you have a third party with muscle to hold publishers to account for prompt delivery! Such a pity this doesn't include delivery to the UK......
