Pure Watercolour Painting by Peter Cronin is an accessible introductory guide to watercolour painting.
The book covers the basic techniques and fundamentals, the steps from sketching, planning and then painting. There are 5 lengthy step by step demonstrations included that you can follow along. Instructions are clear and concise. Colours used are listed.
It's a good book. The only thing missing that I usually see in other watercolour books would be the colour harmony or colour theory section. But otherwise, this is a very hands on book for those who want to learn by doing.
