    Kate, of course, I know about it, lol! It has to do with watercolor and books, two of my favoritest things in all the world.

    I even have ‘Making Color Sing’ sitting right next to my chair.  For some reason, I never saw this book until the 25th anniversary edition came out.  Lots of valuable information.  I would have devoured it if I’d bought it 15 or 20 years ago.  It’s a bit hard slogging through these days – because as you said, been there, done that, yawn.

    However, it’s my practice to read for half an hour or so before going to bed and this is one of the books I use- reading a couple of pages at a time.  Lots of lovely examples, and I often think ‘oh yeah, I haven’t been taking advantage of that technique lately’, but it’s familiar enough territory that it doesn’t make me want to jump up and start painting immediately.  In other words – not boring, but not exciting, either.  A nice way to wind down the day and dream of what I’ll do the next.

    I’d highly recommend it though for someone looking to learn color theory that doesn’t mind really getting into the subject.

    By the way, Sandra, I really, REALLY want to find this book but I obviously can’t afford it at 75 dollars. If you see it for like $20 will you email me? I’d take on in a hot minute. You like yours right?? AND you’re glad you have it? I really want to learn how to successfully make color charts and this coloring book sounds great. I’be been trolling the sites, nothing so far!

    Jennifer, if I see it that cheap I’ll buy it because by the time I told you it would be gone.  It took me about 5 years to find the deal I did.  I suspect it was a mistake where someone looked up the workbook value instead of the coloring book.

    I do like mine, though I haven’t used it yet-I haven’t had much time for doing charts, lately.  I can’t decide if I’m going to actually paint in it or just use it as a reference.

    Thanks Sandra, I really appreciate that. I’d shoot you the money over PayPal right away. I know you do  so much research and notice things I seem to miss so I truly appreciate your offer. Hopefully someone will make another mistake, one never knows. Crossing fingers! Hugs!
