the “u” to acknowledge the influence of my wife’s watercolours and her schooling in British schools. Lindy has been doing simple watercolours for many years, and I always watched her pulling out one of her many watercolour kits to capture a landscape. Although I loved watching her paint quick travel sketches, I kept to my pen sketches with color pencils. Watercolours just looked complicated, time-consuming, and awkward for traveling. After all, it required special paper, brushes, numerous paint, and water! I could not imagine introducing water, brushes, and wet paint to this
effort. Although, Lindy claims she is not an artist, she perseveres with her quick watercolour sketches with wonderful results. I love her approach and her sheer joy of doing travel sketches. In spite of a lifelong insistence that she is not an artist, my humble opinion is that she makes art.
