1. Nicely finished!

Is it from a photo or have you visited there? I've got some shirttail relatives in that part of the world too (one distant cousin runs a cat hotel near Belfast) - brother visited there last summer. There's some beautiful scenery along the coast.

11. Well I bet you'd do a magnificent job!

Oils take a long time to ďdryĒ. But the colors will mix and blend at your command.

Iíve found watercolors can often have minds of their own, and donít always behave exactly as directed.

Masterful job you did with these! Such control.

15. A watercolorist has to be an artist, chemist, and physicist. It's very tricky and

I have more failures than successes.
