A word from the features editor! Review by Sarah A. Strickley

There are many stars in the April issue of Watercolor Artist, but if I had to pick just one, I'd go for editor Kelly Kane's excellent review of one of watercolor's most enduring (and alluring!) subjects: water. Five artists share their techniques for painting this notoriously tricky subject. It's a must-read for any artist.
