My Watercolouring with Tombows Guide

As some of you know I have been teaching watercolor classes for
the last 5 years. Over these years I have had so many requests
to create a watercoloring guide and video tutorial from
people who want to learn my techniques and from my
students who want a guide to help them remember all the
tips and techniques that they learned in my classes.

I have been working on and perfecting just such a guide over
the last few months and am so excited to tell you....
it is finally complete!!

I have now published my very first watercoloring guide.....

I am so pleased with the finished product.

It is fully illustrated with colored images, techniques and
tips. It is super easy to read and understand
from start to finish.

I have always used Tombow markers to watercolor my images.

Tombow has 96 markers in the line but I have colored the
images in my guide using some of my favorites.
My favorite markers list consists of just 34 markers.
I have added all 96 markers to my collection so I could
experiment with other different color combos but always
seem to wind up using just my favorites.
Here is a sneak peek of whats inside......

I have also created my very first video snippet showing my technique.
I chose not to talk on this first one,
it was really strange listening to my own!
It is also available on You Tube.

To order your copy of my "Watercoloring Guide"
You can purchase the Watercoloring Guide for $13.95

I hope you are as excited about my Watercoloring Guide as I am!!!
I will be sharing more videos in the next few weeks...
maybe even some talkies.....
so I hope you will stop by and check them out!!

Thanks so much for stopping by

Have a fabulous day....

You should sell a ton of those. If I didn't have a life time supply of Twinks I would be first in line. Wow! They look great, Karen!

Sharon said...
