Forgot to say... Judys charts are in resources section on pmp

Chris- give it a go! stuff written for Art has a fine shelf life compared to other non-fiction niches.

Hi! Thanks All!

Nathan your color wheel looks great! Your obvious skill in graphic presentation got me thinking. A Lady on PMP Judy Wright has put together pigment charts for all the watercolor manufacturers in pdf form, worth a look in case you could make them into a product. Need to contact her of course. Attached one of the 8.pigment1.pdf Sending you a message too

I've published several books through Create Space. That part is easy, it's the promoting them that takes some work. In my case I am pretty much a niche market so my main market is selling my books at my speaking engagements. http://www.amazon.com/Dave-Weiss/e/B005BHM57I/ref=ntt_athr_dp_pel_p...

Has anyone tried CreateSpace on Amazon?

Nathan your idea looks good too.
Comment by Patti Landrum on October 20, 2013 at 5:03pm
Roy, I too bought your book. Congratulations on executing an idea. It looks good and I haven't yet read it.

Congrats on the book Roy.  The thought of writing a little art how to book as entered my mind after seeing yours on Amazon. Very cool!

Roy,

I just finished reading your book and guess what? I loved it! I fear I need to add "try loose watercolor" to my list of things to try. :) 
Thanks for mentioning it here - definitely worth the read.

This week I made myself act on a product idea I came up with on a whim. It's a color wheel for artists, and it sticks to the wall of an art studio or classroom wall. The crazy thing about this little experiment is it only took about two hours to create! One hour for building the design in Illustrator, and another hour to list it on eBay (mostly because I had to create Photoshop mockups). Here's what I came up with: http://www.ebay.com/itm/251360044970?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&...

I share this in hope that your "crazy idea" may be closer to grasp than you think! Sometimes It's better to "ready FIRE aim" than, "ready, aim, aim, aim..."! 
Go get it!!!
