Several 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 portraits and 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've got a lot to learn about painting, but my goal is to keep improving. I find painting a great way to de-stress when teaching French grammar to teenagers every day gets a bit much!
