    Hi, Esc. Fantastic! You're embarking on the most challenging medium mostly because it's indelible. Unlike oils and gauche, you can't undo what's put to paper. However, in some instances a very mild scratching off of a small area can leave room for a bleed.

    Here, is my "Bethpage Cow". I have mostly enjoyed working from photos I've taken. First, I do a faint pencil sketch on paper I will be working with. Like Sigmadog said, work from light to dark. Not only for correct perspective but you can't lighten dark as with other mediums. You can always go back and darken.

    "Church Cat", here, is from my imagination. While I loved paying attention to detail (like a form of meditation for me) this was fun, liberating and finished quickly. What I like most about this piece is the background. Notice I paid little attention to perspective. The cat is way too large. And that's OK if you're going rough from imagination. I also broke the light to dark rule. I just let colors fly.

    You'll be needing to work on an angle so a drawing board is pretty much a necessity. If you don't have one you can purchase a board designed to set on a table.

    This is a watercolour wash study from night school. This, I found challenging. Sorry bout your jeans and top. Get "Folex" spray. It gets anything out!

    I can't work with oils because I have asthma. The fumes would do me in. So, I just appreciate the medium when painted to my liking.

    And I love Matisse and F. Bacon. You are fortunate to see them displayed!

    Oh, that's very interesting. I never has thought of working with watercolour together with acrylic. It really makes the image pop!
