for Mango editions
I am very grateful to my editor for asking me to publish my book, "Aquarelle la nature recompose", (Mango editions).
I explain the basics of watercolor such as materials, drawing and composition. I develop the theory of colors and their mixtures, as well as my color choices and the application techniques I use on dry or wet paper.
