I am learning so much from this author. The name of the book that I have is Charles Reid’s Watercolor Secrets and it is very good. He explains how to proceed, in gradual steps. What I find is that I tend to overdraw and overpaint, trying to fill all of the space with colour and lines? He limits me thus it is very helpful.

Right Side of the Brain? Or of the Fireplace?
Bring Back the Colours
I have to thank Shari Blaukopf www.shariblaukopf.com for inspiring me to start painting and drawing. She has a blog where she posts her daily drawings, rain or sun or no parking spaces, every day of the year — quite a feat in my point of view and reading and looking at her paintings have certainly inspired me…
I have just bought a book from Charles Reid and I was taken by one of his paintings in the book. I can, not so easily “replicate” what another painter has done, but when it comes to painting on my own, with my own eyes, the act of painting becomes much more difficult.
