What a lovely feel this book has to it.  I love the texture of the pretty cover.  Now, if you're wanting to try your hand at watercolor painting but are clueless, I suggest you give this book a try.  It won't bog you down with a long laundry list of instructions, just the basics to get you started.  Anna Koliadych does briefly explain color therapy (very helpful) and I thought her tip on page 11 (Exercise) is extremely helpful in getting to know the colors you use.  Her 15-minute projects won't overwhelm you but will at least get you going, and there are 50 of them to choose from!  They include flowers, sky, landscapes, leaves, animals, and a girl (page 194) among others.  Each project has the supplies you'll need, the suggested colors, and usually color mixing options.  I love the Garden Bird and Cute and Colorful Bird section, which I'm going to try.  I also love the Poppy and the aforementioned girl.
I detest waste, so should I make a mess, I'll save the messes (I know there'll be a few) to use as collage papers.  You won't need a ton of supplies as for all the projects you can get by with a no.3 and no.8 round brushes!  Do read the Tips and Advice chapter.
