3. Watercolor Course - What Else Do You Want Included?

Since putting out the first questionnaire some moths back, I've received lots of requests for tips and techniques that folks want to see in the watercolor home study course...

I'm not one for making bold claims but I feel confident in saying that this is THE most comprehensive watercolor instructional course available anywhere. I think you'll agree when you see it. However...

There's still room to accommodate your "most wanted" requests. So what aspect of watercolor painting do you most want to improve? What do you find more difficult than anything else? Is there one subject matter that you wish you could paint with ease?

Submit your request and the most popular will be included within the course...


A Perfect Christmas Present For the Little Ones

What could it be?

5. MySpace For Artists? Your Input Needed!

Yep, the visitor's gallery just keeps picking up pace. I've even had to start a new watercolor page to keep things tidy (well Phil, my son did - he's the self confessed computer geek that takes care of the website!).

But it got us thinking...

Would you be interested in your own little space on the Net - one that was designed just for artists of all abilities and a place where you could meet like-minded people?

It would of course be entirely free and mirror the best features of the likes of MySpace and Facebook, dropping the worst. It would only be for those actively pursuing art as a hobby or career.

It will take no small amount of effort and investment on our part so unless there is significant interest, it just won't be feasible.

If you have 30 seconds, I'd love to get your input...

That's it for this issue. See you next time for the Christmas addition!
