Thanks to the lovely people at Search Press for sending me a copy of this book for review. I have not been paid for this review and my opinions are my own.

"With 3 colours, 3 brushes and this practical advice, you can start painting watercolour landscapes"
The techniques in this book can also easily be applied to "free" silk painting projects. If you're looking to experiment with anti-fusant, or "magic sizing" or even spray starch or saturated salt solution, then this is a great book on painting landscapes.
The instructions of how to build up a landscape, how to blend and merge colours, how to mix all the shades and tints, and painting different textures are well explained. You could outline some foreground elements with outliner and then use these techniques for the background, or start by building up a freeform landscape and then embellish over the top.
Definitely a helpful book if you're getting into landscapes. Just remember that you'll need to put some sort of "anti-spread" on your silk (or work with a super-dry brush on thicker silk) if you're hoping to get the clarity of line you can get on paper.
A good resource.
