I've done most of the ordering, everything but the shelves are in place, and I've started to practice. I've never done this before. I'm not a painter. I don't know what I'm doing. So I got Stephanie Pui-Mun Law's Watercolor book to help.
1st exercise. Clumsy (I also haven't been drawing for years again) but it's a start. I used watercolor pencils -- aquatone watercolor pencils. Pure leads. No wood! They're awesome!!!!!
