What are you reading?

Welcome Back

In a twist to the popular ‘What’s on your work desk’ I wondered if it would work with books?

What are you reading?

At Christmas I was lucky enough to recieve Billy Showell’s book and DVD set; Watercolour Flower Portraits. I’m hoping to get to grips with watercolour and learn how to get the best from colours, mixing and blending. Once I’ve finished reading it, I’ll post a review.

There are few opportunities to get to the kind of architecture that I would most like to draw and paint, but there are plenty of plants and flowers in the garden. The DVD has been excellent and being a visual learner,it has really helped. I’m going to carefully read the book and practice as much as I can. Maybe leaves at the moment, till the flowers come back out.

How about you?

On the novel front I really enjoy Jack Sheffield Teacher series of books. Thank goodness for the Kindle. Being dyslexic, the options for altering how the text appears on the Kindle has made a huge difference to me. In the past if a publisher printed a book in a text style I couldn’t read, no matter how much I loved the author, I couldn’t read the book. Now with a Kindle I can choose a font, line spacing and font size. It’s so much better, also the E ink that the Kindle uses makes it much easier to read too.

If you are struggling reading ‘regular novels’, do try a few e readers in the stores at the moment, they could make all the difference to you too.

Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon

Billie 🙂
