Überarbeitete Neuausgabe des bewährten Titels (8. Auflage: BA 2/86) in moderner Aufmachung mit durchgehend farbigen Abbildungen. Mit kurzer Einführung zu Malutensilien, Motivsuche, Grundtechniken und Perspektive sowie Tipps zur Auswahl und zum Auftrag von Farben. Unverändert blieben die 10 in SchrittfürSchrittFolgen auch für Anfänger nachvollziehbaren Beispiele für typische Landschaftsmotive. Vom inhaltlichen Standpunkt her brauchen ältere Auflagen nicht ausgetauscht zu werden, allerdings ist die neue Auflage natürlich deutlich attraktiver im Layout (keine SchwarzWeißFotos mehr), frischer in den Farben, darüber hinaus fest gebunden und nicht wesentlich teurer als 1985. Zu dieser beliebtesten Motivart in der populären Aquarellmalerei gibt es zahlreiche Konkurrenztitel (erwähnt seien nur die neueren: "Handbuch Landschaftsaquarelle", BA 8/02, vergriffen; "Aquarellmalerei Landschaften", BA 12/02; "Aquarellmalerei: Landschaften: Meisterkurs", BA 5/03); dieser bleibt dabei Grundbestandstitel.
