Lack of Confidence
I think I can almost hear myself whispering,
that I regret saying YES

I only touched brushes (larger than size 0 and 2) few times in my life
(because I used to draw on ATC only).
I don't know where on earth the courage came from.
Because of the illustration job,
I invested in some new brushes and the biggest (and most expensive) ever watercolor paper,
I had so far.
