From the Publisher
Many of the pages in this book are mostly blank Italian watercolour paper, left for the use of the reader/painter. The rest of the book is filled with Thacher Hurd's artwork and technique tips. Attached is a brush and six-colour palette of Reeves watercolours manufactured by Winsor & Newton, probably the foremost name in art supplies in the world.
