Watercolor Books from My Library















Some of my Favorite Books on Watercolor:

This is no doubt my second love...I don't show any of my watercolors but my daughter has them hanging in her home. These are some of my favorite books on the shelf. Since you know me as a pencil artist, I am sure you expect to see books with watercolor paintings exhibiting lots of realistic detail...I think you will be quite surprised.

I thought I would add one of my favourite watercolor books: No More Wishy Washy Watercolor by M.M.Martin!
