Every time I find watercolour becoming a little difficult I go back to some intensive outdoor sketching to gain confidence.
But somehow, I get complacent easily and quickly and then I want to create only finished work and tend to ignore exercises like making small studies and sketches. I feel the real hurdle for me is the discipline required to keep sketching continually and incessantly. This is not easy to do for someone like me, but luckily there are people like Adebanji Alade who can inspire anyone with the way they sketch and practise.
Thanks to everyone out there who have inspired me and continue to do so withe their art.
