I do not want to win this book just to have another book in my collection. I want this book because it is the one which can change my wrong way of painting watercolours. I like colours but well harmonized and this is the book, I think so,  that have the answers to my questions in this matter. Greetings.

I would like to win this book because I just bought my first watercolors and I really have no idea how to use them! I love the look of so much in this book and I know it would be very helpful.

I would like to win this book because I still have no idea of what I am doing when I use watercolors! I see wonderful pieces in my head but can't seem to put them on paper, and I love the pictures I'm seeing that are in this book! I need all the help I can get LOL

the information i will gain from reading this book will help me create realistic watercolor figures and portraits.

I would love to win this book because I am just starting to explore watercolors and I find them challenging. 

I have tried so hard to do watercolour art and failed everytime. A book like this one would go a long way to help me learn this wonderful form of art. Also, I have never been taught how to use colour in my art, this book would help me so much.

Thank you to everyone who participated in our giveaway!

The winner is...

Evert Furrey from Butner, NC, USA!

Congratulations, Evert!
