Frankly, I'm not fond of this title. The paintings in the book are high key, too moody, and too loud. So loud in fact, if her artwork could sing, it would shatter the sheet of glass placed over the mat inside the frame. Having saying that, it leaves a lot to be desired.I do admire the author's knowledge of attributes using colour with subtle tones of light and shade, but that's all you see. All her subjects have way too much central focus with very high contrast in the foreground with no color balance whatsoever.
She does acknowledge grey and complimentary colours, but it's forbidden during the dance. She also goes on explaining how to play hopscotch around the colour wheel ignoring Triads and Mid-Values in her demos. I'm going to dismiss this book with saying, it's an academic study of light and shade from a feminine point of view painting with Watercolour.
