.... I love painting ‘en plein air’. The colours in the Southern Hemisphere are brighter. The weather entices one to be outside. I am inspired by the rich quality of oil paint. There is nothing more exciting for me than starting with a blank canvas and growing the idea out of it.
I have taken classes with many teachers in an attempt to gain new knowledge and insights. Especially in Botanical art and oil painting.
