More About A Petoskey Watercolor Journal by Catherine Carey
 
 
 
Overview
A lavishly illustrated how-to on painting with watercolors as well as a beautiful depiction of the Petoskey region of Michigan.
Nestled on the shore of Little Traverse Bay, Petoskey is a well-known resort town in the northern Lower Peninsula of Michigan. It is famous for its charming downtown, Victorian summer homes, and natural beauty.
Watercolorist Catherine Carey uses her home town of Petoskey and her personal journal as a primer to the technique of painting with watercolors. In her journal, she describes why she selects a specific scene to paint, what the focal point of the painting should be and why, how to sketch the scenescape, and how to mix colors to get the desired result. Each of the journal pages will include at least one of the author's watercolors. On one page, she will present painting tips and on the opposite page she will describe her experience when painting the scene.
While the book will be a how-to on painting with watercolors, because of the quality of Carey's art and Petoskey as the subject, the book will also make a unique gift for tourist to the area.
