I began to paint in oils in 2014, having spent many years working with textiles. My work was mixed media landscape. In oil I have been drawn to flowers and still life. I have also been taking a course in Botanical Drawing and Coloured Pencil. This has been very enjoyable and I hope has improved my drawing. I have been attending bi-monthly oil painting workshops for the past couple of years. It is lovely to work for the day with other painters and be given really useful advice by the tutor. I also attend watercolour workshops, a medium I find very difficult to master, but the fun is in the learning.
