Review:

"A comfortable walk through the challenging world of maritime
painting by an accomplished artist who is also a sailor and who is as much
at home with his media as he is with his subjects." -- Leisure Painter, April 2007

'A comfortable walk through the challenging world of maritime
painting by an accomplished artist who is also a sailor and who is as much
at home with his media as he is with his subjects.' -- Leisure Painter, April 2007

'Anthony Flemming is, in my opnion, a very fine artist wo can portray boats, the sea and things associated with the sea exceptionally well.
If you have any ability at all with sketching or painting, this book should be inspirational.'
-- Sailing Today {Main}

'Anthony's guide to this often-neglected subject is worth the
wait.' -- The Artist, July 2007

'Flemming... is not only a brilliant and versatile artist, but is
also an experienced sailor with a deep knowledge of sailing craft of all
types... His helpful and knowledgeable advice and the reproduction of many
of his fine paintings are just what struggling maritime painters of all
standards need. His book is lavishly illustrated, contains much encouraging
and helpful advice and is an excellent practical guide.' -- Artists' and Illustrators', June 2007

'The author instructs the student with easy, down-to-earth ways of
painting in oils, but mostly concentrates on water colours. The book is
absolutely brilliant on giving the various techniques of sketching,
painting, colour toning, equipment to use, composition and - in my opinion,
one of the most important options - artistic licence... This book is
extremely well-written and easy to follow, and it stands out from other
books on this subject....
Superb... should anyone wish to take up art or even brush up on odd
techniques, you can't go far wrong in purchasing this book. Thoroughly
recommended!' -- The Nautical Magazine, May 2007
