Off to college.

Well, last Thursday was the first night of the new term of "Techniques in Watercolours", the course that two of us signed up to.

The evening courses come under the heading of continuing education. It was really great to be back painting again. It must be about four years since I painted in watercolours.

It is so different from painting in oils or even acrylic where you paint dark to light, with watercolours you have to consider your light/whites first and then your darks.

We had a go at painting washes, mixing colours and painting - autumn leaves in rich yellows and reds - and fading greens.

I must remember to do the homework!
