I just purchased this incredibly inspiring watercolor book last week that I am so excited about! I love Jean Haines‘ style. I am always trying to push myself as an artist. This style of expressive watercolors is very different from my normal controlled way of painting, and I think that is why I love it so much.

I think it is important to continually study different styles and techniques as a painter. The watercolor book I purchased before this one was called “Botanical Sketchbook” by Mary Ann Scott. Scott’s book features the incredibly controlled style of botanical drawings.

What books are you inspired by?
