Sketchbook for the Artist by Sarah Simblet
The entire series of Splash, books by Northlight Books, is a great addition to any watercolorist's books shelves. This series consists of one book published every year featuring some of the best watercolors produced that year. I am partial to Splash 15 and Splash 17 because they feature some of my paintings (high five!) but the entire series is worth buying.
