The other day I was poking around on my phone and decided to play with the stylus my Note 9 comes with. I rarely touch it. When I do use it, I use it for a long period of time and the Note 9’s stylus only holds a charge for 20-30 minutes.

Then, I got out some of my watercolor sets and doodled out some stuff on my watercolor pads.
Turns out, I’m not a watercolor-er. I’ll keep trying and see if I get better at it.
After a few more doodles I think I’ll break away and start putting together more miniatures. I have a few kits laying around that still haven’t been put together. The first one I pulled out is a sewing room:
