在安德鲁·怀斯、托马斯·埃金斯、温斯洛·荷马和约翰·辛格·萨金特等美国画家的传统中，马里奥·安德烈斯·罗宾逊向我们展示了如何通过使用简单而复杂的当代技术，创造美丽的、永恒的、古典的水彩画，每个水彩画家都需要知道。许多画家发现水彩画很难控制，常常对效果感到失望。水在纸的表面蜿蜒流过，在画家的画笔适当的细微差别下，水会不情愿地沉淀下来。罗宾逊对水彩画的处理方法主要是传统的，但他的方法是非常规的。罗宾逊简化了这一过程，教艺术家们从亮到暗分层颜色，并首先关注突出的区域。他教导说，这些价值应该在绘画的开始阶段就建立起来，使用单色拼版，这样你就可以在柔和的灰色底漆上釉上纯粹的色彩层。结果产生了更复杂、微妙的画作。此外，他的“活在当下”的方法将水彩的不可预测性作为过程的一部分，最终的结果是一幅具有强度、自发性和美感的绘画。鼓舞人心，简洁，实用，马里奥·安德烈斯·罗宾逊给每个技能水平的水彩画家从初学者到高级专业鼓励的建议和必要的材料和技术信息，他们需要把他们的现实主义绘画到下一个水平，如:基本的工作室实践•材料和工具•探索你的主题•绘画的重要性•水彩技术•考虑价值•融入色彩•克服水彩挑战•艺术家的生活插图丰富，这本书有超过100个罗宾逊的发光的，情感的水彩; works by past and present watercolor masters, including John James Audubon, Henry Casselli, Thomas Eakins, Winslow Homer, Michael Lowery, John Singer Sargent, and Stephen Scott Young; 8 in-depth step-by-step painting demonstrations; color charts; product illustrations; and diagrams.

The Chinese and Japanese also used water colors for their works. These artists worked on fabric and used silk as their work surface to paint literature and calligraphy. Chinese calligraphy is renowned throughout the world and many Chinese artists still use water based inks. After that, from China the tradition was taken to western world. The Indians and Persians used water based paints in their works of decoration, and the Muslims used them to show their religious history. Paper, off course, played its role in flourishing of our beloved water colors. We can give the credit to Chinese. Chinese were very good at creating paper. They had handmade papers of best qualities. In the eighth century, the Arabs came to know their ways of making papers. Europeans imported paper for a long time until they managed to open their own mill in Italy. In early ages paper was considered a great luxury as it was very expensive. This was one of the major reasons why the water color paintings did not flourish for a long time. When paper became available to people the great artists like Leonardo de Vinci started using it for their drawings. Albrecht Durer, a German artist, is known to be the first master of water colors. Among his many paintings, the Owl is worth seeing and worth studying. The depth of the eyes and the softness of the bird are very evident.
