Recently retired and decided to try to paint! Never really tried my hand at drawing or painting before, so very much a beginner and needing to learn the basics. Started some evening classes to get me going. I am enjoying watercolours probably because at my skill level there is a randomness involved in what I produce, Pastels are proving an interesting medium. I am an accomplished photographer having won international and national awards and I hope to be able to use some of the skills developed in my photography to become more arty.
