After a lifetime of engineering drawings, my Wife Carol bought me ten weeks of art sessions at the Ten 2 Gallery in Hinckley.
I did classes introducing me to Acrylic painting. I followed this with taster sessions with watercolor. So I then did 2 x 10 weeks in both Acrylics and Watercolour.
That Christmas, I had 2 paintings accepted for the Galleries Art Display Competition.
So I continued with both painting media for a while, as I try to develop my own style of painting.
