Check out my book, "The Artist's Guide to Painting Water in Watercolor", published in 2015 by North Light Art Books.

The content covers painting water in all its different states, from calm water to rough water, to open ocean. Detailed step-by-step demonstrations throughout the book guide you in painting reflections, rivers and waterfalls, fog and rain, as well as snow and ice.
