Hello. I am a retired Chartered Building Surveyor who took up watercolours at the age of 66 fourteen years ago. It is never too late! Whilst I could always draw and understood perspective ( my training helped that) I had never painted other than a few sketches for clients as an articled pupil 60 years ago. How I wish I had found watercolour painting earlier! I enjoy every minute. Learning the tricks of the trade takes time but persistence pays off. Whilst I have so much still to learn, I couldn't have imagined how far I have come since I started. What's more, I have "met" so many talented and encouraging fellow artists through this web site and others who have taught me a lot.
