This is an utterly gorgeous and inspiring book.
Watercolor Painting at Home is a wonderful guide to finding the beauty in the day to day of your life and painting it. I love the idea of painting our collection of glass bottles that I refashioned to use as kitchen herb planters, or my Kindle or one our cats sleeping next to my mug of tea with a cookie, that concept takes the majority of my stress - my desire to paint with watercolors but my weird anxious worrying about what to paint and then not painting at all because I can’t think of anything to paint. This reminds me to go outside in our yard and look at the spring flowers that have begun blooming about, or take a look at my unorganized bookshelves and try to paint the charm of those perfect imperfections of our lives.
The book itself is beautiful. Wonderfully whimsical paintings abound in these pages and I found myself just wanting to start painting again. I can’t give it high enough praise for that.
I loved the inclusion of craft ideas for your paintings at the end.
This is an absolute recommendation.
