Stuart specialises in fantasy landscapes and is also the author of Celtic Fantasy. The step by step instructions will enable you to create three watercolour designs and inspire you to experiment with your own ideas once you have grasped the techniques in this book.-KarenPlatt.co.uk This introduction to fantasy art has the great benefit of simplicity on its side. Stuart Littlejohn has taken what can be a huge subject and distilled it into three very thoroughly illustrated demonstrations that will set you firmly on the right road if you're just starting out. If you need a little help with the practicalities of the medium, there's a useful introduction to materials, colour and composition at the beginning, but even more experienced artists will find that the real meat is in the demonstrations.-Artbookreview.net
