Can I have a look?

There's nothing quite like painting outside,
after a few weeks of relentless rain, it's such a wonderful feeling to get out and do some sketching. Needing only a few bits of equipment a pen or pencil and sketch book and your free to work anywhere, I spent a few hours on my favourite walk around Derwentwater stopping occasionally and capturing what inspired me, luckily my companion the 'duck' was not to critical.

2009 Dates

Can't believe September is here, I've just organised next years courses, It's a enjoyable job thinking of the places to go to paint,imagining the glorious weather we will be having! and remembering courses from this year, funny stories and little mishaps. Painting is a never ending learning process and a wonderful hobby. I'm about to start running an evening class for beginners in Watercolour in Keswick which is always alot of fun.
