Lots of color theory, info on tints, values, color combinations. Intermediate level. Also basic info on techniques: adding salt, scraping, sandpaper, sponges, and alternative tools. Good reference book on watercolor.

Another great book by Joe Garcia. Many useful examples, tips and most of all the last 100 pages full of practical demonstrations! Definitely worth checking out.
