I'm still working on those six New Year's resolutions.
Two I'm doing okay on. One I had to re-write
mostly because the spirit was willing but the flesh was weak.
I found a website that proclaimed one could go from a
couch potato to running a 5k in just twelve weeks. Maybe
some people can but not me. When running became such a chore
that I hated to get up; I just re-wrote my resolution. No more
running. Running--bleeeccchh. My knees thank me.
I'm back to walking and occasionally riding bike.
Another plan was to do a little drawing every day. This turned into
drawing a whole lot of stuff on one page.
Looks like I'll have to go to the next page now.
Another project was to learn a little more about my watercolor pencils
so I can use them for on-site sketches. I played with layering
and washes and combinations of colors.
I tried using them with permanent drawing pens.
The ones I have, Faber-Castell Albrecht Durer, brand have wonderful intense colors.
But with a little practice the colors can also be soft and misty. Like a rain-washed street.
