The different mediums that you experiment with should add further to your enjoyment. Don't worry if, at first, you might make rather a mess of the exercises; no one ever became any good at art without making lots of mistakes to start with. As long as you consider carefully everything you've done, no matter how unsatisfactory or disappointing it might be, you will soon learn not to repeat your mistakes too many times. Experimentation is the way that art evolves; it is not just the preserve of scientists. So, prepare to have a good - if occasionally difficult - time with the exercises in this book; with my heartfelt good wishes on the expansion of your artistic ability.
