I am desperetely looking for a copy of the book "Texture Techniques for Winning Watercolors by Ray Hendershot" I love his painting style and would really like to get his book and learn his techniques. Unfortunately it is out of print and cannot be found. I did find one used copy on Amazon, it is from an individual and they want $60 for it, which I consider almost robbery. I wont buy it simply on that principle. I was just wondering if there was anyone here that had it and maybe would consider parting with it. I hope so!!! :)
Hope to hear something.
Thanks, Chris

Hi Again Chris:

I checked out Northern Books but they have nothing on file. I sent them an e-mail as I am a current member, and should hear back from them tomorrow.

Cheers,

Gail

Chris - I went onto the Bookfinder4U website - found quite a few stores that stock it cheaper than you were quoted - you can find them here.

Hope that helps.

Thanks everyone, Gail, I have already checked the bookclub and they said that they had none but thankyou so much for checking for me. I have also followed the links that al of youl gave me but all the places seem to be out of stock also. There is one person on ebay selling it for $56 which I feel is way too high. Again thanks to everyone.

Heck I paid $200.00 for a book that sold for 60.00, the point being if you want it bad enough you will pay.......

Johnnie and Rich, I agree with what you are saying "If you want it bad enough youll pay..." However, more that once I have bought art books sight-unseen through the mail only to be dissapointed when I got to see inside them. I am sure this has happened to everyone here. If I had already seen inside of it and it was what I am looking for then that would be a different story, but I have never had the chance to look in this one. Everyone else, I look up every link that you send me but still havent found one yet. I have also e-mailed the author, he knows no place to get one either. I fear that I wont ever get a chance to see this one.
Thanks, Chris

Hi Chris, why don't you check your local library? I've just looked in our own library catalogue - and it sure is there! I ordered the book as I'm curious now! :)

Chris I just received an e-mail from North Light and they have a couple of copies. It is now out of print so it will be hard to find.

If you e-mail Jack in customer service he should be able to help you.

Hendershot's book is now up at ebay. It currently has no or few bids and is under USD10.00 - search Watercolor.

I got the book! As some of you suggested, I continued to check ebay and actually found one on auction. It arrived today.
Thanks everyone,
