Charles Reid's Watercolor Secrets can be found on Amazon... follow the link.
On my desk ... This book has little tid-bits for the artist such as the tips below.
I like this one as well because I'm always obsessed with back grounds.
And about color ....
And what about this ... shadow shapes.
On another note .... I can't believe how fast summer is passing by. I've been busy reading, mostly art books such as Harold Speed's book Practice and Science of Drawing as well as a couple of mysteries thrown in for those lazy days ... (have you read any of the Jack Reacher books) ??? As well as short boating trips, working in our yard and enjoying our friends. Life is good!
Yesterday we had to take our cat, Odessa, into the vet. She seemed to be having some issues with her mouth and we wanted her doc to check it for us. Seems she had a loose canine tooth that he will pull this morning and she'll be home safe and sound this afternoon. I guess you'd say she's on her first sleep over...
Have a good week ... keep on sketching.
