For the Painter #27: I must experiment

image

“So I am hooked on the medium, with its fluidity and transparency, and I delight in the traditional process of working wet-into-wet. But I have also found that in order to paint the terrain as I see it - blotched, mottled, grainy - I must experiment.”

–John Blockley

This week in For the Painter #27 ...

I have something a little different for you this week - a book review of two books by John Blockley. I was able to get these two titles from the library; Getting Started in Watercolor and Country Landscapes in Watercolor.

You can view these two books and a few more by John Blockley on archive.org for free. You'll need to create a free account and then you can borrow the books for an hour and view them online. See the link below.

I hope you have a wonderful week!
