I too, gave this a 5 star. A careful reading and actual testing of the ideas in this book brought my understanding of layering watercolor to a refreshing new level. And I have only had the book one week! It will take considerably longer to absorb the full content. I am currently reading a chapter on bridging areas of dark and light which tells us how to connect these areas naturally without losing their respective values. While I haven't tested this idea, I understand it and see immediately how this kind of refinement has the potential to 'Make Colors Sing'.

I learned so much from this book. Maybe the later edition is printed more muddily or the previous reviewer likes hyper saturated colours, but this book brought my understanding of colour mixing to a far higher standard than three years at art school gave me.

I've taught colour mixing in art classes and recommended this book many times. Try the exercises in colour mixing with real quality watercolour paint and you will be a convert!

The title is a joke, surely. The book contains the most insipid paintings imaginable. Yes, here is a faint golden glow here and there, but a glow is not singing colour. For the misleading title, disappointment and wasting my time, I have given it one star.
