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.

August - part 1
For some reason I found this challenge from Paint and Draw together very eery. Lela had composed the picture from three different references.
I tried to start the painting several times, but alas no. So for the first time I thought I would try it as an abstract, and for me it works, (but I wouldn't want to do all challenges abstract).
The pigs, I am calling this - "It's stopped raining can we play out ?" It is the next in the series of around the farm.
