Painterly Days: The Woodland Watercoloring Book for Adults

Painterly Days: The Woodland Watercoloring Book for Adults Paperback – by Kristy Rice released Mar 10 2016 by Schiffer Publishing. This exquisite 60 page book contains 25 x 2 gorgeous 9" x 12" woodland sketches on quality watercolor paper. The pages are double-sided with the same sketch on both sides, so you can practice or try different techniques. I did not experience any paint bleed through. Suitable for any skill level, just add paint and brush. A suggested materials list is included. I purchased the dagger paint brush from Kristy's list of personal favorites. I'm glad I did, it's lovely to paint with. A novice, I began by perusing the book and watching a couple of Kristy's videos. The extraordinary artist shares her techniques for creating stunning artworks via online demo and in book commentary. I chose a spot to paint, laid out my supplies and then jumped right in. I am thoroughly enjoying this book! One of a series of 3 books, my watercolor adventure will continue. I highly recommend. Get your copy below!

  2. I have a number of colouring books but none have double pages for one drawing. I love colouring with pencils, not sure I would like watercolour as much, though.

  3. A beautiful twist on an upward trend. So many colouring books for destressing and using the artistic part of the brain. Have not tried watercolors...yet!

  7. I have always loved watercolored prints and such a large book to use with the colors. I like that the paints and book come together and would try it despite being a novice as well.
