  1. Your watercolours are always beautiful ( and so are your figurines ;)

    I could never quite master the technique, is there a book that you would recommend to learn the basics ? I don't think I'll ever measure up to you but that would be great on my Chritmas list :)

  2. Thank you very much Cynithia! :) This book is a really nice one, I learnt the basics from it:

    http://www.amazon.com/Beginners-Guide-Watercolor-Step-Step/dp/1859749674/ref=sr_1_43?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1259962793&sr=1-43

    Other than that you need to have good watercolor, it really makes a big difference and makes it much easier to paint. I use "Windsor" and "Schmincke", either will be great.
