If you want to get good at something you should paint it - a lot. That seems pretty obvious. I want to get more at ease at painting patterns. And yet I always seem to leave the pattern out. This is a cup with dots on it and the tie has diamonds. See the pattern - neither do I.

It looks like a pattern but nothing I ever saw before and yet I like it.
