Another watercolor class canceled due to the winter weather coming in today - predicted another 3 inches of snow on top of what we still have on the ground. Some of that thick ice will be on the sidewalks until spring, I'm sure of it!
So - time to practice and study and learn even if I'm not in class.
Here are a couple of great quotes from Tony Couch:
"The artist that improves is one who is interested in improving. He or she does the things, spends the time, and goes through whatever toil is required to learn, while the less interested artist skips over it."
Also, he has a formula for this:
W x T = I
(W - more Work;
T - more Time spent working;
I - faster Improvement)
So does that mean it's going to be easy? Apparently not! Mr. Couch also says, "While you practice, keep in mind that watercolor painters are divided into two groups: those who have been discouraged and those who are going to be discouraged. There's nothing wrong with discouragement; it's part of the game. The crime lies in quitting because of it."
Now go paint or study or...work those brushes!
