Mastering Glazing Techniques in Watercolor

This is a new venue for me. I am more accustomed to teaching in the studio and in watercolor workshops.  In 1985  Watson-Guptill Publications began publishing my books on watercolor technique.  In November, 2011 I re-issued an updated, revised edition of Mastering Glazing Techniques in Watercolor and it is now available at numerous locations.  If you want to buy direct you can purchase the new Volume I at Amazon.com or www.createspace.com/3657628.

The main focus of this blog is to discuss watercolor technique as well as offer suggestions about paints, brushes, paper and supplies for watercolor. I will exhibit various pieces for tutorials and try to answer any question you may have related to watercolor.  I am currently working on Volume II and will share some of the elements of the new edition.

So, if you are new to watercolor or an old hand please post your comments, questions, etc.  Please feel free to contact me at don.rankin1@facebook.com or see content  Choosing Reds  at
