“Ev Hales has succeeded beautifully with this latest addition to her e-book series on watercolor painting. Tackling the subject of painting boats takes skill and courage. Thankfully she has both and although very challenging the book is a winner. Her style is direct and supportive and totally lacking in an condescending phases that can sneak into other self help art books. There is a vast area of knowledge to cover in this title and all of it is at the worst interest and at the best inspiring. There is vital info on drawing boats as well as painting so that either a more experienced painter or a novice has something meaty on their plate. Give it a go and I think you will be pleased.” V.V.
“As usual, Ev Hales has produced another out standing eBook, revealing her inspirational methods in painting watercolor boats … I could never achieve the orthodox method of drawing a figure 8 first to turn into a boat…thanks for the hints in achieving realistic, to scale, boats.” Lyn
