Sat 28th May – In my Blog on the 8th April I mentioned my efforts to refine my skills with watercolour. Well I have read books from the library, attempted dozens of exercises and found most to be too demanding for me. In my youth I did quite a lot of pen & ink drawing and I think that is where I am now heading, perhaps with watercolour washes added. I recently borrowed a DVD Water Colour Journaling and that encouraged me to try and draw and or write something every day in a journal. The results have been encouraging and rewarding. I have found throughout life if you do a little toward a goal every day the results are usually impressive. Either by diminishing a huge task or as in this case slowly but surely acquiring and refining new skills.
