Bio

Hello

I started painting in June/July 2020. My hobby of dance had been paused due to the pandemic so I decided to learn a new hobby to punctuate my hectic working life. Having no painting experience at all, I was anxious about my lack of ability. Like Rod, I bought everything in the art shop and started following several YouTube artists. I soon realised, that although, not the best artist, I found it both relaxing and rewarding, not to mention, frustrating.

Over the last 6 months, there is no doubt I have improved, sometimes producing a relatively ‘acceptable’ piece of art. Recently I was feeling that I needed more understanding of the fundamentals of painting so I could learn to produce more consistently ‘acceptable’ paintings. (and hopefully ‘good’ ones in the future)

Following the good old Google search, I stumbled across LTP and Rod two weeks ago and was instantly drawn to the instruction and delivery of teaching. I felt that the group could offer me what I needed to improve, so joined as a life member. I’m really looking forward to learning more and seeing where my new hobby can take me.
