A wonderful start to 2012


Just over a week ago I learned that my painting "Pretty Peas" (above) has been included in a new watercolour book by Robin Berry, a huge privilege and my first published work!

Having received my copy of "Compendium of Watercolour Techniques - 200 Tips, Techniques and Trade Secrets" I am even more thrilled, this is a fabulous book, very well written and illustrated, and I can recommend it both to beginners and more experienced watercolour painters (and no, I don't get any money from the sales!)  It's already inspired me to try something different which has got to be a good thing.

Really beautiful 'Sweet Peas' Ruth, and congratulations on being included in Robin's book. I have ordered it off Amazon, hoping it will be here tomorrow. :)
