How I learnt

Day 14 of #marchmeetthemaker.

I learnt, and am still learning, a lot just by looking at others demonstrating their skills. Last year I participated in a number of artists' workshops and demos, including one by watercolor artist Shari Blaukopf. Here's a little study I made during the workshop, of light, color and shadow in a narrow Porto alleyway. Can't wait to get my hands on @sharisketcher’s upcoming Urban Sketching Handbook, about techniques for using watercolor and color media on the go. 🤗

What is your favorite way to learn and improve your artistic skills? Any books on painting on location that you can recommend? 📚
