Up until just 4 years ago all my paintings were watercolors. Here's one I did of my Dad ages ago. When he wasn't working outdoors on the farm he was sitting at the kitchen table reading. He read more than anyone I've ever known.
There's no trick to having an adventure if you spend a bunch of money, travel hundreds or thousands of miles, or pay someone to organize it. But the adventures that I find the most interesting are the ones you cob together yourself with available gear and friends and access by walking out your front door.
