A sneak peek at my bookPosted: November 26, 2018
Last week I spent some time reviewing the final proofs for my upcoming book and just found out that I can share a bit of the content with you here. It’s so exciting to see it all come together and it will be even better when I can hold a printed copy in my hands in April 2019.
This spread is from the chapter on Pigments and Color Mixing. There’s all kinds of cool stuff in this section, like basic watercolour techniques and choosing your colours, but the parts I liked writing the most were the colour recipes for creating greens or darks or colour for shadows.
It was really fun to go through my archive of sketches and look back at how some of these mixes were created. And if I didn’t remember the details, it helped to go back through old blog posts too, since I often write about what mixes I use. My main goal with the book is to encourage you to be more expressive with colour, and I can’t wait for you to see the work of all the contributors who generously sent me sketches and shared their colour secrets as well.
