As with any For Dummies book, you can start anywhere you like and jump around as you like. But if you're a complete newcomer to art or painting, I suggest you turn to the chapters in Part I. If you want a refresher on how to compose a good painting or how to deal with perspective, the chapters in
Part II can help. And if you want to jump right in and get your paints wet, turn to any of the chapters in Part III for painting projects of all descriptions.
You're about to set sail on a journey that can last a lifetime. Watercolor can take you anywhere, build you anything, elevate your spirit, and calm your soul. Watercolor provides a way to communicate when you can't find the words. It's a companion whenever you require one. Watercolor will take you wherever you let it lead you, so welcome aboard!
And remember: You learn and discover most by doing. The best advice I can give you is to paint, paint, paint!
