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.

Half way through the year already! The first two paintings are challenges from Paint and Draw Together, one oil one in pastel.
This is a picture I painted while I was waiting for the next challenge to be posted. I quite like the effect of the sun catching the little group as they played.
