today...

...was watercolour day. i made myself paint. i found it very difficult to do and i don't think i like watercolours. they are quick and easy to use but i don't really know anything about washes or layering up the colours. i painted an A4 sheet of lions up and they look okay, it is just that they all look a tad brown, yellow or tan. i bought some Bockingford paper to paint on but it needs stretching. i am hoping to get back into the print room next week but pennies are very tight at the moment. i might have to do a small lino print at the weekend if there is time inbetween all the stitching.
