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.
There were no challenges for September as Lee was on holiday and this was a challenge set by Paint and draw Together.A pastel drawing of Lelas sister,I'm afraid i have made her look rather anemic,although I was pleased with the likeness.
On holiday in France we went for a trip to Geneva and was feeling a bit guilty about not have produced any pictures,so I quickly set about this clock tower.
Lee back from holiday and posted this really difficult picture of a place called Tellaride Colorado.My goodness this was a fence and a half!!!
