Stunning Watercolor Seascapes
written and illustrated by Kolbie Blume
Story time: After I started getting into the groove of painting simple watercolor landscapes, I tried my hand at painting a seascape -- and it was a MAJOR fail. My waves still looked like mountains, and it seemed impossible to capture the complexity of moving water. So, I stopped trying... for a while.
Then, I discovered something that made this impossible subject seem actually doable... and in this book, I want to teach you everything I've learned.
"Detailed step-by-steps, inventive projects, and clear instructions, Stunning Watercolor Seascapes will make you want to dive right in! Kolbie’s ability to break down seemingly complicated projects into easy steps will not only give you the confidence to paint seascapes, but will have you looking at the world around you in a new way!”

"But what if my projects don't look like yours? There's no way I can paint like that..."
- me, 5 years ago
Look, when it comes to loud inner critics, mine comes with a megaphone and a foghorn -- I know what it's like to have a voice constantly reminding you how much you're not doing.
The truth is that your projects probably won't look like mine -- because they're yours. And that's exactly what makes them so special.
Creativity isn't about results, making masterpieces -- it's about celebrating how magical this moment can be, right here, exactly as you are. It's about the tiny moments of wonder that happen when colors blend and ideas flow. Creativity is for you, not for anyone else.
YOU ARE WORTHY OF CELEBRATION, EXACTLY AS YOU ARE.
