I had no art training until I joined a class in our small village in Oxted Surrey (U.K.) in 2001. Since then I have thoroughly enjoyed learning about water-colour, pastel and oil painting. I have been really been inspired to try these different media by my art teacher. Now with no classes for a few years finding the Challenge sites has been a real boon, I am having a great time. The stimulation one gets from the challenges and the wonderful support from other artists has been fantastic.

Art in Provence Southern France
This first picture was done on a sepia background, i'm not sure whether it reflects the feeling of Southern France in the middle of summer . The media is pen and wash. It is a media I really like but feel there is still a lot of work to do to achieve better results. The first picture is of a church in the hill top village of Siagnon .
The second picture I selected is of another church this time on a white background, and is the village church in Monieux .
The third scene is of part of the village of Casenueve looking towards St.Saturnin les Apt. All these villages have their own character and I really enjoyed sitting and drawing them.
