Snow Tips Reference Information

There is a good blog called the Watercolor Artists Blog that you can go to with this link:

If you go to the post on Monday, January 11, 2010, you see some great tips posted by Cathy Johnson, who is a very good sketch artist and I would recommend any of her books while working with sketching and watercolor. She has a new book out called "Watercolor Tricks and Techniques," on Sale at for $19.79.

I would also recommend the February 2010 Watercolor Artist Magazine for snow tips so pick up this latest issue at your local news stand. Cathy Johnson also describes some of her tips in an article called a "Revolution of Snow" that has several artists tips on painting snow which are useful for sketching. Barnes and Noble and Borders usually carry Watercolor Artist Magazine or you can also order it at You can also sign up to have the North Light Bulletin mailed to you, they usually have some great book deals. I've noticed their prices are better than Borders or Barnes and Noble for the artist books they carry.
