My E-Books
The first e-book I wrote is Painting on Watercolor Canvas. This is an exciting new surface created by Fredrix Canvas/Tara Materials, and easy for the beginner because it allows easy corrections to the very end of the painting process. It allows you to paint on a canvas panel or a stretched canvas. The latter should be a depth of 1.5" so that you can paint around the edges, creating a "gallery wrap". This requires no framing at all. After the painting is complete and dry, an acrylic spray or watercolor varnish spray can be used to seal the surface. In addition to that you can optionally use an acrylic gel to add texture to the painting, thereby protecting the surface even more. To order this for your computer please click here

Then I decided perhaps I should write an e-book about the Learning the Basics of Watercolor, on any surface! So here it is. I have tried to keep the instructions simple so that even the youngest beginner can understand it. To order the book, please click here .

Painting Flowers in Watercolor....one of the things I love to paint most, gave me the inspiration to write this e-book for you. In it I show you how to paint them without drawing, for a fresh approach. And I paint several different kinds of flowers from start to finish. Click here to order.
