Well hardly, I say! But, it is important to add to your skills and try new things. I have never really been tempted to learn how to paint with watercolors. But, there is a very strong desire to be able to create small, simple renderings of real places and things. It seems the best medium for this is watercolors. Later this year Roy and I will be spending 3 weeks in wonderful Italy! With that in mind, I desperately want to bring back a small memory journal with paintings of the things we see and experience. I have a 5X8 journal with wonderful watercolor paper. I found an image (that sort of resembles this) on a calendar of Italian scenes. So I attempted. I am pleased with it! I think the real answer is to just practice over and over, until I think I can paint with some confidence. Of course, the correct answer would be to probably take a watercolor class! I might. Until then, I think I will find another page in that calendar and give it a go.
