I was inspired seeing your lovely watercolour sketches on your cycle trip @distel - someone bought me a little watercolour set and I had a go!
I think last painting I did was probably 25 years ago in school :/
Any tips/advice/resources? ... I have some way to go ...
A book which is probably the best art tutorial I've ever come across is "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" by Betty Edwards.
It shows how to shift from "L mode" which typically dominates but has no patience and draws cartoon like symbols, into "R mode" which is more meditative and can perceive the world as shapes and space without trying to recognise or name everything.
I like the cartoon-ish style much more and decisions what to leave out and what to change, are very important too.
sometimes I try not to look too much and draw my own interpretation of a thing.
my arts teacher in school said: if you draw photorealistic, why not take a photo in the first place?
