Four years ago, I did an online Diploma in Painting and Drawing with London Art College, which I found very informative and fun. Since then, I've particularly enjoyed doing watercolour portraits and acrylic still lifes. I'm a full time French teacher, so I don't find much time for painting. But I get my brushes out whenever I have the chance, especially in the school holidays. I still feel like a beginner when it comes to painting, and I've got a lot to learn. But I find painting a great way to de-stress when teaching 60 teenagers a day gets a bit much!
