Why not start a sketchbook? You could start small…. maybe by sketching small objects. Remember to look very closely and draw what you actually see (shape, patterns, line etc), not what you expect to see. Sketch everyday objects and views of the changing seasons through your window. You could also include water colour paintings if you have one of those small tins of block paints. You will be amazed how your artwork improves just by looking closely.
Here are some good websites that you could have a look at. Many are interactive.
