This is a funny story! But some people who start out like this end up being
very good at what they do. I have a friend who is a watercolor artist (and
a lawyer). When he first started painting, he also went out and bought the
finest brushes, paint and paper, even though he had just started painting.
But he continued to paint and in a few years he could paint way better than
I could after years of working on it. I say, if you can afford to buy all
the stuff you need to make really good prints right off the bat, go for it.
