I've been wanting to try out watercolors for a while now, and this past weekend, while in the 'burbs visiting Mike's family, we went into Michaels to kill some time. They were having a big clearance sale, and in the pile was this wooden case set of watercolors. I couldn't believe it! I got a great beginner's set for only $8! I couldn't wait to break it out on Sunday, and I started my very first watercolor. I have a long way to go, to learn about planning a painting and sketching it out, but I love the silence and concentration involved in the whole process. What new thing are you learning these days?
