Meet Paint Amazing Watercolor from Photographs author, Henry W. Dixon, in this YouTube video introduction to his book: http://www.youtube.com/user/wdix341#play/uploads/1/GrX3TrRKue4
What an amazing and gifted artist. I appreciated Henry sharing his knowledge with the rest of us. I find myself constantly picking this book up to read...again and again. As an avid North Light Publications reader - this is by far one of the best resources I have aquired. Sign me up for his next book! I sure hope there will be many more from Henry W. Dixon!
Great job North Light!!!!!!!!!!!!
