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.

Kettle and apples for the Rookie site .Painted in oils .I had a great deal of trouble making the apples look like apples , they wanted to look like last months' tomatoes.
The Ponte Vecchio was the challenge for a day not wasted , painted in pen and wash.
