While there’s always something more to learn, I’m comfortable enough with graphite and colored pencil that I usually don’t do much preparatory work, if any, before diving into final artwork.  Not so with watercolor.  I’m still a novice with this medium, so I did a lot of preliminary work before starting this piece.

I have a long way to go before I feel I’m at least somewhat proficient with watercolors.  As frustrating as it can be learning a new medium, it’s just as exciting when one begins to unlock its secrets.
