Cowritten with artist/author Elise Mahan, this book shows not only techniques for painting the constellations in watercolor, but also gives back info and history of the constellations, the zodiac, and moon lore. I’m so proud of this book, and grateful to the folks at Quarto Publishing for making it look so beautiful! Elise’s paintings are gorgeous and I feel privileged to have been a part of this work with her.
Here are som pics of the front and back covers, as well as inside material featuring the work of both of us. A full description is available at Amazon, and they have a sweet deal on the hard cover (as does Barnes and Noble)
