The next stages in learning for me involved reading hobbyist magazines and acquiring a small library of instructional books and a couple of DVDs. Trying out exercises from them increased confidence. An example of this is a painting done from a Ray Campbell Smith demonstration ( below).
I would describe this stage in my development as being one of coming to terms with the materials. It also began to open my eyes to the long road ahead, so much to learn, a road with no end but hopefully some staging posts.
