I love taking the bus, taxies or just walk around.
I believe one of an artist most important skills is OBSERVATION. It comes, I think from genuine interest in shapes, color, shadows, moods, and personality of a place. Even if I don't sketch I assimilate my environment.

In the first grade I was introduced to watercolor, and later experimented with gouache.
I am not sure why all this is coming to my mind. May be it has somthing to do with teaching. I love sharing it all with others who are just starting or well on their way as painters.
We all who work with paint or pencil, have something in common, It is a sort of meditative state, letting the painting be, and only be the tool which expresses it.
