I have been working a lot of overtime for the last few months and have spent far more time collecting painting supplies than using them. The project I'm planning is I want to fill a watercolor sketchbook in the month of September.
I realized while I was doing the brainstorming that I had two big obstacles and oddly time isn't really one of them.
The first was I tend to overthink and make things harder than they have to be. (ie Should I take a bookbinding class to make my own sketchbook? No! At least not right now.)
The second was my brain has usually turned into lumpy oatmeal by the time I get home and while I may want to paint I have no ideas other than pushing paint around in no particular patterns.
Planning really helped to take care of the first problem and brainstorming helped come up with a solution to the second.
1. I'm going to come up with a limited palette of colors and only use those.
2. I'm going to start working on the massive list of skillshare classes I've been wanting to take.
Of course, there are way too many teachers and classes to squeeze into a month or one sketchbook, but I started at the top and came up with 36 classes so I have choices but not so many that I get overwhelmed. I can close my eyes and point if I need to.
Thanks again for the terrific class.
