This will be a Christmas gift for my very talented granddaughter, who is a budding artist. The drawings are simple, yet exquisite with the colors and shading. It is perfect for any age because it progresses from easy to more advanced. This is a great book that I would definitely recommend for anyone interested in wildlife or nature. The pictures are beautiful and the instructions are easy to follow. Whether you have watercolor pencil or painting skills, or just want to learn, then this would be the perfect book to have in your library. While I thought about keeping it for myself, I realize that I can borrow it for guidance as I draw pictures for framing. Useful for Do-It-Yourself decor!
