A couple of super watercolours Caroline - must look up Andrew Pitt

Another super sky and great depth Caroline.

Hello Michael and Fiona, thank you so much, lovely to get your comments, it's like meeting up with old friends again! We had building works pretty much most of last year and I had a bad case of block as well, but I feel the mojo is returning!

I can see the Andrew Pitt influence here. I have read with interest his articles in LP over the years,I believe he is a great fan of Edward Wesson. Glad you are back in the swing with watercolour, Caroline.

Yes, you're right, he is a big fan of Wesson's. I've been to one of Andrew's weekend workshops in the past entitled something like 'Watercolour the Wesson way'. I think Andrew might have met him though I can't quite remember. Anyway his teaching is excellent and I highly recommend him. Thanks for the welcome encouraging words Stephen.

I think in one of the Wesson books I have, Andrew has written a piece about attending one of Wesson's workshops. it obviously made a big impression on him.

I did an Andrew Pitt workshop once at the Norfolk Arts Centre. I thought he was an excellent and very generous teacher and enjoyed the weekend very much. It looks as if you had the same experience as me as this is a lovely painting with a nice sunny quality to it.

Thank you, Thea, yes, I did have the same experience just as you say, a very generous teacher, kind and patient, and taking great care to spend individual and equal time to each student, unlike another teacher I had at the same centre as you. This course was at Watershed Studios, which is very friendly and well run, with excellent food!

I came to art late in life after the proverbial ‘wake-up call' of serious illness. Starting with an evening class in drawing, I’ve carried on learning from DVD’s, books and weekend courses. I attend a weekly Life Drawing class, a brilliant foundation for just about everything. Plein air oil…
