I agree that watercolour is difficult, and I haven't picked up a brush for about a year and a half. Considering how much outlay there has been on paper and equipment, this is to my shame. However, does anyone agree with me that, even a little bit of knowledge of watercolour technique enhances one's appreciation of paintings in all sorts of ways. I have a watercolour on my staircase which everyone thinks is quite dull, but when I look at it, I look at the way the washes have been laid, the granulation in the blues (a wonderful technique) and the simple flicks of the brush that produce the most enticing detail. The subject hardly matters.
