Gina Rossi Armfield's No Excuses Watercolor Will Release in June of This Year

Eagerly awaited new book from Armfield, author of No Excuses Art Journaling and founder of, will once again be published by North Light, No Excuses Art reports

Gina Rossi Armfield, author of the highly regarded and influential No Excuses Art Journaling, announced that her upcoming book No Excuses Watercolor will become available in stores and online in June of this year. The eager reception No Excuses Art Journaling met with when it was published in 2013 led Armfield to found, a project that has since become a top source for online watercolor classes and other art courses. With No Excuses Art Journaling still selling briskly and reaping glowing reviews, Armfield's upcoming release of No Excuses Watercolor is eagerly anticipated.

"I'm excited to say that No Excuses Watercolor will be released this June," Armfield said, "It was great to be able to work once again with my publisher North Light Books, and I'm really proud of what we have put together. I can't wait to hear what my much-appreciated fans and others will have to say about No Excuses Watercolor in a few months."

An active, busy mother of two with degrees in fine art and education, Gina Rossi Armfield came to realize that it was most often relatively mundane hurdles, like an apparent lack of free time or confidence, that held people back from pursuing their artistic dreams. Dissatisfied that so many were missing out on what she herself knew was an incredibly rewarding pursuit, Armfield worked hard to arrive at an accessible solution.

These efforts culminated in No Excuses Art Journaling: Making Time for Creativity, a book published by North Light in 2013 that found a grateful and enthusiastic audience. With a series of simple, practical strategies and tips, Armfield showed her readers how they could work art into their lives in natural and gratifying ways.

Building on that momentum, Armfield launched not long after, quickly filling the site with a range of digital courses and lessons, as well as an active, vibrant art blog. In addition to turning into a thriving online community, producing two instructional DVDs, and giving in-person watercolor lessons at major art retreats and elsewhere, Armfield has also been hard at work on the upcoming No Excuses Watercolor, a book that will develop her proven, popular No Excuses art journaling approach in surprising and rewarding new directions.

Focusing on watercolor painting, No Excuses Watercolor: Painting Techniques for Sketching and Journaling will help to break down the barriers to artistic progress that so many people believe hold them back. By working through the book's 22 demonstrations and 13 helpful exercises, readers will build confidence and commitment, quickly coming to understand how watercolor painting can become an important, valuable part of their lives.

No Excuses Watercolor is now available for pre-order at and elsewhere. The book is currently scheduled to appear on store shelves and online on June 17, 2015.
