Sharing a Moment. New Book 2012


An Exciting Moment.

The first proof of my book has arrived!

It is here,the moment where my heart skips a beat and I can't wait to open an eagerly awaited package The proof of the first sectiosn of my new book has arrived! I can't describe this feeling of anticipation. I have worked so hard trying to share my passion for watercolour in my second book  aiming to include new ideas and approaches to working in my beloved medium.

I have met so many artists and seen so many styles over the years so to me it is vital my own stamp is very much in the pages of my second leap into becoming an author. It is really funny how life can bring momets where you just cannot contain how happy you feel. As a normally cheerful person I find it hard not to enjoy every single day or moment life has to offer but this is surely amongst the most magical.

For those who would like to know what is insed this package,well it is the pages of the first half of my book without images at first. For now blanck spaces lay where the paintings will be added at a later proof session.That will be where my excitemnt hits an all time high and you can be sure I will share that special moment here on my blog.

For now I need to absorb every chapter, study the location of each image and how it fits with the text and decide if the flow is working or not leading the reader  deeply into  each new page and technique demonstrated.

It is a fabulosu feeling.Inside each section I am sharing so much that I am eager for other watercolour lovers to see. Ways I am working that I haven't shared before and new ideas that have evolved since starting to write this new publication.

I told my publishers the wierdest thing happend to me when I wrote my first book. I grew as an artist when writing each new page then. It is happening again and I love it! I hope everyone reading my new book which will be launched next year will feel the same way.Excited,eager to paint and loving every second they hold their brushes.

Roll on 2012.......but not quite yet as I still have a few chapters left to write!

****************
