Andy Evansen is a master watercolorist and instructor. He has a way of distilling information and making it easy to understand. And, this video offers a great pairing of that information / instruction, and excellent filming.
I've been toying with the idea of painting watercolors in plein-air, but didn't know where to begin. Andy's video will definitely get me out of my studio.

Seeing how he begins with a value study in Payne's gray and how it translated into the painting was very helpful. I'd love to take a workshop with Andy.....
