I attended a short 'introduction to watercolour' course at Hylands House in 2008 and found watercolour painting quite a challenge - but great fun.
My Artist's statement for the 2017 Billericay Town Art Trail was ....
"A painting turns a flat sheet of paper into an illusion."
Whether it is the subject matter or a style, I just love to see what 'new illusions' I can produce.
I generally paint for myself but it is great when other people like the results too.
When people want my paintings hanging on their walls, that is the icing on the cake.
Many of the pictures that I paint are based on photos that photographers have uploaded to the pmp-art.com site, for which I am grateful.
To get the best results I use high quality paints and paper.
