      Reid's book on painting portraits in watercolor is a classic, and difficult to find. Our library had a battered copy, obviously well used. I think it is valuable for its help on drawing accurate faces, and for its loose approach to color. He isn't for the casual beginner, but painters who want help and inspiration can't go wrong with this book.

      Saw this book at the SHAC where I'm taking watercolor lessons. Reid has a style I hope to get close to one day, although I have no desire to be a portrait painter.

      Charles Reid je úžasný a jeho knižky jakbysmet. Jen málokdo dokáže s tak nepokojným živlem, jako je voda vytvářet takto krásne a živé obrazy. Vžycky, když si libovolnou z jeho publikací otevřu, tak se něco naučim. Škoda jen, že nebudu nikdy umět s akvarelem to, co on. Ale na druhou stranu, být věčným žákem takového učitele taky není špatné.

      While randomly searching for a third book for a "buy 2 used books, get 1 free" deal, this book caught my eye and I chose it as my freebie. Apparently I stumbled across a rather highly recommended book, which I am seeing online for between $40 and $60. Mine was marked at $5.25. Hopefully, I'll find it a great resource.
