WatercolorPainting.com -Website includes tutorials, paintings, learning, art links, glossary and reviews. About Gregory Conley: In 1996 I started researching and writing a watercolor book called "Watercolor: Tools of the Trade" that concentrated on factual information about watercolor materials, tools, technique, and history. But the tone of art publishers at the time was geared towards fluff titles like Awash with Light: Amazing techniques for the Nocturnal artist or Watercolor: Channel your way to beautiful 18th century paintings. I continued working as a house-husband/freelance artist/fine artist/musician and decided that the book would work well as an internet site. In 1999, to my amazement, the domain www.watercolorpainting.com was available. (Who dropped the ball on THAT one?) Fate had intervened and the obsession began.
Arts Council -The purpose of the Windsor Arts Council,
