I love Lela’s paintings
I have been painting in watercolor for several years and I wanted to understand how I could get to the next level in my paintings. I love Lela’s paintings and in this book she has shared many of her “secrets”. It has helped me understand how great watercolor artists think and I picked up some very useful tips.
