June 2, 2009

Sorting through the vast array or watercolor books for the beginner can be difficult when you don’t know what is good and what isn’t.

A few recommended books include:

Watercolor for the Serious Beginner by Mary Whyte

For the kid at heart, check out Watercolor for the Artistically Undiscovered by Thacher Hurd and John Cassidy. This Klutz book includes a paint set, brush and plenty of watercolor paper to experiment. Lot’s of fun!

You should be able to find these book on for around $10-$20. You can also check out your local library. It’s a great resource for those folks that would like to keep there investment small until they find out if they even like watercolor.
