A NEW CD GIVEAWAY!

Hi all! This was so much fun and had such an amazing response last time, I decided to do it again! I'm offering another Watercolor Basics CD, FREE, to the lucky winner.

This time we'll draw from the first 50 people to post here! (Please be sure to include your name or some way to contact you privately if you win.)

Above is one of my favorite paintings on the CD--done on the spot at Rocky Hollow Park, but still with a variety of techniques you'll want to explore.


This CD is full of information, examples, paintings, and step-by-step demos in PDF form--you can print them out to read whenever or wherever you are!

There are also lots of exercises to familiarize you with basic techniques and skills, or let you brush up if you haven't painted for a while! Even old hands have told me they've picked up some new info.

There are 14 in-depth instructional PDFs on the CD, plus a mini-catalog, artist's bio, and more...


Below are three new examples of the art you'll see:






Watercolor Basics normally sells for $16.99 on my website catalog--feel free to click the link to learn more about it!

I'll have Joseph draw the winner's name next weekend, and ship it to you Priority Mail at the first of the next week.

Good luck, and hope you like it!

  12. I was hoping I hadn't missed out on this give away. I have been searching for a watercolor CD and I'm in the mood to learn! I love pen and ink washes, so the logical next step will be watercolors.

  13. Oo, I've always wanted to own this, but don't have the funds. I'll try!

  14. I'm so excited! I sure need this tutorial, but am happy for whomever the winner is. Thank you for your joyful and giving spirit Cathy! If I don't win, I will surely buy this eventually. hee hee.

  15. Hi Cathy, I'd *love* to enter the draw again. I'm still getting round to learning to work with some of the techniques in some of your other books, but I'd love to learn more. I always find your drawing/journalling/teaching makes me want to grab a brush straightaway - and the will to paint is half the effort in becoming better at it, I think!

    Thanks for such a generous and wonderful giveaway, and congratulations to the happy winner, whoever they turn out to be!

    I'm a little scared of spam, so instead I'll tell you that you can find my email address on the contact page of my website: http://www.missleonie.com :)

  16. Hi Cathy:

    I have enjoyed looking at your work very much and I think I could profit from your free disc. I'm in Canada so if that presents a problem I understand entirely.

    I can be reached at eclipse48atsympatico.ca

    TIA and your generosity and talents are very much admired.

    Best regards,

  29. If positive affirmations work, then "I win what I enter" and "I can see a CD coming my way". :) Thanks for doing this, but good luck to everyone, especially me. :)
