Recommended Literature

Updated: Nov 11, 2019

Hello fellow watercolor/pigment nerds!


Recently on my Instagram account @stakiwicolours - I asked for recommended watercolor related literature. Basically, really AWESOME books!


So, this post is dedicated to all the books recommended to me all in ONE place. I did some research and found that Amazon is generally the most affordable because although thebookdepository.com is free shipping, that the books are a little bit more expensive. So, maybe weigh up for yourself what is best for you.


I have linked them all below for your ease. Enjoy! If you purchase any of the below. Please feel free to share your feedback either on this post or in the forum.











I have gone ahead and ordered a few new books. Currently I am reading The Secret Lives of Color by Kassia St. Clair. I am loving learning more about each color / pigment and it's history. It's split into chapters by color and then split again into variations of that color like White and then Titanium White or Zinc White. Fascinating!


What interesting fun facts have you learned recently?


Happy book shopping!!!


Stacey.
