I am a retired psychiatrist and I started drawing portraits in my childhood. In adulthood I have tasted oil paints during a short period lacking in outcome, then I gave up painting. Since I am retired, I have started paint watercolour. I have attended courses and workshops of watercolour in Italy and I am now member of Academy of Watercolour of Padua. I am still a novice and I have much to learn and I would improve my technique. At present I have gone back to my childish passion and I paint most of all portraits. I apologize for my bad English.
