Really pleased with my newest North Light book...

It got into the stores, onto Amazon, and into buyers' hands about a month earlier than expected, and the reviews have been really good! 

Above is one of my favorite step-by-step demos from the book, from a visit to kateslover in the Blue Ridge Mountains, back before we were married..  Gorgeous area...we drove through clouds and watched that subtle, beautiful sunset over the mountains...

I found a link on the Artists' Network today--it's one of Jen's Picks, and they even included a step by step demo of my landscape on Yupo.  You can find it here: http://www.artistsnetwork.com/article/watercolor-tricks-techniques/ and order it from the North Light Shop (linked on that page), and of course Amazon has it as well--you can click here for details, including the Search Inside option...Watercolor Tricks & Techniques: 75 New and Classic Painting Secrets (Just remember to hit "surprise me," you can see a lot more of a book that way...)

I did animals and people, too, of course, and also some whimsical pieces like childhood toys and a goofy doll I designed years ago!

There are step-by-steps on both of these, too...my little friend Fiona and my beloved Merlin...


Thank you! I was pleased with it! (Oh, I guess I said that already, didn't I!) North Light did a really lovely job on it...

I am too. I just got it in the mail yesterday. Very nice. I like the format.
I'm so glad people are liking it, and the new format! Thank you, Yanagi!
That is beyond what "Wow!" can cover, but I can't think of a bigger word!

Very, very cool. Congratulations!
Thank you, sweet thing! I'm always excited to see one come off the presses!


Autographed copy of new book?

Hi Kate,

I would love an autographed copy of your newest book. How do I go about that? You have really made such a big difference in my journal keeping. And, your comments on our blog have been very encouraging.

Re: Your new book

Thank you, Maree! They did a really nice job with image reproduction, the color's terrific! I hope it sells like hotcakes...whatever that means. ;-)
