I started painting when I retired (2002) and fell in love with it. I started with colour pencil, have done watercolour pencil, watercolour and some acrylics. I always come back to watercolour. I also love to sketch and paint “plein air”. I have painted with many excellent teachers and continue to learn techniques and develop my abilities by taking classes, visiting art galleries and reading art reviews and books. My work includes a variety of subjects such as landscapes, animals, architecture, etc. When I see something I like, I will either sketch and paint it “plein air” or take a picture for later in my studio.
