I have always been afraid of strong, vivid colors when I dabbled in watercolors. This book would show me how to take my work up a notch or two. To win it would bring me great joy and start me painting all over again.

I would love to win this book. I have looked at it at northlight, but can;t afford to spend the money now.I love the bright colors, and try to add that in my water color paintings.I would put it to good use.

I would love, love, love this book.  I'm a beginning watercolorist and need ALL the help I can get.  This book looks and sounds so exciting.  I'm sure it can give me a lot of help and ideas.  :-)

I want to win this copy because I have been applying to win lots of books on art colony but never won a single one. :(

I would like to win this book to help with watercolours when I use them.

At 66 I am trying new things and just signed up for watercolor classes at the Canton Museum of Art in Canton, OH.  Winning this book would be a special treat.  Thanks for this opportunity and may you all have a blessed, joyful New Year.

PS-= these pictures are absolutely beautiful - can we use these in our personal artwork or are they copyrighted? 

I am new to water colors and am thirsty for knowledge. I love the techniques that I have learned so far and want more, more, more. I have 40 watercolor cards I need to paint so I need more inspiration.

I would use the information in this book to help me create my watercolor journal. It would inspire me with ideas.

I have am coming back to painting after a very long timeout.  It has been 40 years, but now I have returned.  For the last three I have been painting in acrylic and love being back.  I have resolved this year to learn and experience watercolor.  I believe this book would be a good start for me on this adventure.

I would love to win a copy and try some new ART!!!!

I have always been in love with strong, vivid colors, when I dabble in watercolors I'm afraid to explore new heights. This book would show me how to step up a notch or two and begin to open my mind and look outside of the circle. To win it would bring me great joy and happeness
