One book that has helped inspire me to create is Kolbe Blume’s Wildnerness Watercolor Landscapes. This book builds upon itself to allow you to gain knowledge on how to paint a variety of watercolor landscapes.
This is the second time I have picked up the book. The first time I tried painting from the book, I just looked at the pictures and tried to paint by briefly reading what was written. This time around, I am actually taking time to read the text then paint the project. Let me tell you, the projects are a lot better this time around.
I have completed 10 of the 30 projects in the book. Of the 10 I have completed I have to say the Milkway Delicate Arch has challenged me the most. I finished the painting without including the Milkway portion of the painting. Maybe I will go back later and try to add that to another one. I did enjoy creating the arch and mixing the colors to create it.
Have you read this book yet? What do you think of it?
