on instruction.

I took a three hour watercolour class at the local community centre this afternoon. We painted a sunset behind the mountains.

It never hurts to spend any time as a student, no matter how much skill you think you have. There is always something to be learned from another person, a skill or a tip or an insight to be gleaned.

I learned about half a dozen interesting tidbits, from little techniques about applying paint, to some colour theory, to a short list of other clever tools I’ll apply in my next few paintings… and beyond.

In fact, the question is not whether I learned anything but when am I planning on taking my next class?
