So far on my watercolor painting journey I think I've learned the following:
  • You cannot achieve good painting without good drawing, but you CAN achieve bad painting with good drawing.
  • Good paper is more important than good brushes which are more important than good paint
  • Eyes make the painter, not the tools; but good tools can sure help the eyes
  • Simplify, simplify, simplify
  • Do not be afraid to fail, but learn when to stop and how to wait.
  • Gravity can be your friend. And also your enemy.
  • A "breakthrough" painting can almost shame much of your earlier work, and it can take a long while before it has worthy company.
  • Practice does not make perfect. But it sure helps.
