Books! - In No Particular Order (The Ones I Forgot)

Well that's what happens when you are looking at your handwritten notes, and you forget to flip over the piece of paper and see what's written on the other side. :-)

 Color by Betty Edwards: A Course in Mastering the Art of Mixing Colors

 Landscape Painting in Pastel: Techniques and Tips from a Lifetime of Painting

[NOTE: It appears this book was just published this week so may not be the one recommended at the meeting, but I don't recall who recommended it. My notes just say "Landscape" by Elizabeth Mowery, and she has several books - all of which seem to have "landscape" in the title, LOL. If you are the one who recommended her please let me know which book and I will make sure to correct if need be.]
