*** ALL LINKS BELOW *** Hi Everyone, as a few of you have requested to see the review to this book, which I wasn’t too keen posting, here it is.

The Walt Disney Film Archives The Animated Movies 1921-1968 Book Review
Video / July 19, 2020

The Walt Disney Film Archives The Animated Movies 1921-1968 Book Review In this review I discuss the XXL version which is available on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2WBNydX This year a smaller and cheaper version will be published. You can pre-order it on Amazon: https://amzn.to/32xkyaZ (These are Affiliate links) This is the XXL version of the book and has 620 pages. It was published in 2016. The book is huge and comes in its own keepsake box with a handle on it so you can carry it around. You really need to put the book on a table because it weighs 14 pounds. It is a collection of the Disney Archives and private collections. If you already have some books about Disney movies you will find some art you have never seen before. There are around 1,500 images in this book. The book cover is bonded with a linnen back and has gold embossing. The foreword is written by John Lasseter. The book is edited by Daniel Kotheschulte, a German who is also a curator, lecturer on film and art history. Apart from the beautiful images the book is very well documented by some professional authors that have written books about Disney animation…

Anna Mason’s Watercolour World | Book Review
Video / June 17, 2020

*** ALL LINKS BELOW *** Hi Everyone, Anna Mason’s Watercolour World book has some stunning large scale images of Anna’s beautiful realistic botanical art watercolour paintings. It’s a great coffee table book to look at, however there are not that many step by step tutorials like in other botanical art books in comparison. But there are lots of tips that Anna shares about how she achieves that hyper realism in her botanical art. It’s time for a cup of tea again! 🙂 My Face Watercolour Palette [18 colour list]: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ul2Qn1nbUiM&t=19s My Candy Box Watercolour Palette [15 colour list]: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnW8c_1Q2lc&t=1s Alyona x *** NAILS: *** • ESSIE Madison Ave-Hue: AMAZON UK: https://amzn.to/2PkExQJ AMAZON US: https://amzn.to/2C3abhS *** ART SUPPLIES USED: *** • Anna Mason’s Watercolour World: AMAZON US: https://amzn.to/2OslVBr AMAZON UK: https://amzn.to/2R6TkQq • Botanical Sketchbook by Mary Ann Scott AMAZON US: https://amzn.to/2OXJ5fS AMAZON UK: https://amzn.to/2zEJO02 *** MUSIC: *** Royalty-Free Music: Epidemic Sounds YouTube Creator Subscription: http://www.epidemicsound.com
