Revisiting Charles Reid’s Watercolor Solutions.

I’m collecting quite a view painting videos now and some of my favorites are by Charles Reid.   As with most ‘how-to’ books the value and interest is not in the tips or advice.   Charles Reid in particular is just a pleasure to watch paint.  He talks you through what he’s doing and his thought processes.   Do I learn anything?   Who knows – but it’s a simple pleasure,  calorie and cholesterol free and easy on the liver.
