re: waiting for paint to dry.

Watercolour painting has forced me to become more patient than I’m used to.

I’m used to pushing through. I’m used to getting stuff done sequentially and quickly. I’m used to checking off items from a to do list to complete a task.

But then I paint.

Watercolour sometimes forces you to sit and (literally) wait for the paint to dry.

Just wait. Not do. Not touch. Not proceed. Just wait.

That can be a good type of hobby to have.
