I just remembered something about myself from my primary school days: Back then, the school would occasionally organise a bookseller to visit, and pupils would get a chance to browse and buy books during recess, at a common area in the school. We could take the books home, get our parents' approval and money, and pay the bookshop the next day at school. I recall that over the years during which I attended that school, I had bought the equivalent of a small library of books on how to sketch, draw and paint. I never went on to study anything related to art in my later years, except for technical drawing - 2 years at what was then the equivalent of junior high school. I then endured a massive amount of botanical and zoological specimen sketching during high school and university ( but for science, not for art !). So, it's small wonder that I'm still dabbling with art. albeit digitally these days, in my middle-age !
