Love, love, LOVE this kit!
After binge-reading a bunch of CPS back issues, I became intrigued with watercolor sketching using a travel watercolor kit and waterbrushes. Unfortunately, my detail-oriented, perfectionist nature gets in the way of me doing small, fast "essence of" sketches so it has been a bit of a challenge. I've tried a few times and have been satisfied with the results, but finding interesting subjects and examples hasn't been easy.

Gina's watercolor techniques are exactly what I've been wanting and needing to learn so I can enjoy watercolor sketching! I love her loose, colorful painting style and how she uses photos and images from books and magazines as her sources. I have watched both videos and will definitely watch them again because I know I didn't catch everything the first time through. Gina has an upbeat, pleasant presentation style that is easy to watch.

I also read the ebooks, but for me, ebooks aren't a good way to enjoy this type of material so I also bought the print versions of the books.

I received the paper "No Excuses Watercolor" yesterday and the ebook just did not prepare me for how much I would love the paper copy. I am so looking forward to trying all the exercises, but the best part of the book for me is that 13 inspiration images. Gina selected a variety of beautiful, interesting landscape/travel, animal, and nature photos that are printed in about 5 x 7 format. Then she shows you an ink drawing and a watercolor painting from the photo. Working with these will give me a good start on the practice that I need to begin to develop my skills.

Even though I'm not a journaler and never will be, I also got the paper edition of "No Excuses Art Journaling". I will not be creating a journal, but I will be using the hundreds of beautiful watercolor illustrations in the book as inspiration, too. There are so many small, quick sketches that capture the essence of the subject. Even if I use few, if any, of the journaling techniques, the book is well worth the price just for all the watercolor illustrations, and it's not just Gina's. There are also many beautiful ones from the guest artists.

This is a fabulous kit if you want to develop loose watercolor skills that lend themselves to use in journals or small sketchbooks.

Oh, maybe I should be embarrassed to admit this, but I had a very simple "Aha!" moment early in one of Gina's videos. I did not know about spritzing dry (cake) watercolors with water to activate them before using them.
