I've struggled this week as I'm sure you all have. My way to escape is to paint and I've put together a little video to show you how easy and relaxing watercolour painting is. I want us all to stay positive and healthy 
I'm hoping to do regular video's showing the joys and fun of painting. I hope you enjoy it and it's a perfect time to get those paints out now.

Tete a Tete




'Tete a Tete' a quick watercolor sketch. Let's keep positive and be creative. I picked a couple of flowers from the garden. The sketchbook  came out and enjoyed half an hour of watercolour play, no pre sketch just straight in with the brush loaded with Winsor Yellow watercolour paint.
This is what the sketchbook is all about.

Why not have a go 😃

The magnolia is saved for another day.
Silly me it's a Camellia not a Magnolia!!

Turning Life's negative to a postive



I'm all for turning life's negatives into positives
Life felt a little dire yesterday with all the media, the weather was dismal too which added to the gloom.
Today I wake to sunshine, go for a run in the wonderful English Lake District
Pass people wandering along enjoying the sunshine and wide open spaces.
It's times like this when I love living in the Lake District and not a big city, I wouldn't swap it for anything.

But I do know there are many people anxious at home wondering what on earth to do.
Paint or be creative now is your chance to bloom.

Art equipment can be bought easily online and really does bring hours of enjoyment forgetting about the worldly worries.

My online watercolour or pastel course is ideal for joining when you don't have to leave your front door, but will give you lots of ideas and new experiences for the coming Springtime and Summertime when you can take your new hobby to a new level.

Enjoying a quick sketch in the Lake District.
