I live and work in Berkshire as a Piano Teacher. I did two workshops on watercolour painting flowers in June 2021 and became slightly addicted. Six months on I have made some progress, but I am so in awe of all those skilful artists out there showing me just how much I still need to learn. My 2x great grandfather was a watercolour artist and also a gilder for Royal Worcester, and my father was an Architect who dabbled in watercolour painting, so I’m hoping there is some skill in my genes I can develop. I love the sea and nature and I’m beginning to learn how to see all the different colours that really make up the view I’m looking at. Mixing them is another matter!
