‘Print is dead.’ — Dr. Egon Spengler, 1984
Books are heavy. They require a lot of space to store them. Sometimes I misplace them. The book I need is always the one I can’t find!
The solution? eBooks
Kindle Unlimited — Kindle has a huge number of digital books about watercolor, including both instructional books and collections of paintings. In the Kindle app, just search for watercolor, watercolour, gouache, drawing, etc. eBooks can also be downloaded to the Kindle app for reading offline. For a small monthly subscription fee, I can have access to 10 books at a time.
