I started dabbling in watercolours about four years ago. I had always wanted to paint but did not think I had the slightest capability or modest talent.
One day i went into WH Smiths and found a special offer of three primary colours, two brushes, and a small booklet on the basics of watercolour. I took them home and have been painting ever since.
I am self-taught and have never attended an art class. It is all trial and error but I love the way the colours flow on to the white paper, and the sheer unpredictable nature of the medium. I am hooked!
