I took up painting and drawing about fifteen years ago-long after my retirement from music teaching.
I started with watercolours but it wasn't long before I tried other mediums. I became a member of a local art group soon after I started painting and I am still a member of that group. It's only a small group so we can't afford demonsrations from visiting artists.
I recently rediscovered my love of coloured pencils and I am enjoying working with them.I particularly like using them for animal portraits.
