I am working up my nerve to give watercolor another try. Very few of my attempts have been rewarding in any manner, but a number of my favorite artists keep pulling me back. Anne Karp, my friend from the Pacific Northwest is always a source of inspiration and Lian Quan Zhen's makes the medium look so easy. He has a number of demonstrations on Youtube that make me want to rush down to my studio and start throwing paint everywhere!

A friend sent me a link to a wonderful site belonging to an artist from British Columbia. Amie Roman creates beautiful prints using all of the traditional techniques. Her section on printmaking information explains many of the ways prints are made, and is well worth a visit.
