Artist Mary Whyte has learned many lessons over the years--lessons about art and, perhaps more important to her, lessons about life.
In this book, she uses specific illustrations from her training, her teaching, her travels and her mentors to show the reader how to see and how to appreciate the artist's experience. Referring to numerous color and black and white examples, she explains what her intentions and feelings were during the composition and completion of many of her favorite works.
The techniques of watercolor painting can be learned. Skill, according to Mary, is never enough. One must learn to feel as well as to see in order to become a complete artist and a complete person. Her paintings are beautiful; so is her soul.

I like to arrive early in the morning at the pond so that I can watch the lotus flowers open before noon. Some years I am there at peak season, when the pond is crowded with bright pink blossoms, and I can see the color of the flowers a quarter of a mile away when I round the bend in my car. The year I did this painting, the flowers were sparse and late, but I was there just in time to see the first one open. The lotus flower's dramatic light shape was contrasted by the rich darks behind it, like a soloist on a stage.About the Author:
