Hi! I started painting in October 07 after watching a program on watercolour painting on TV. It really stirred me up, I went to hobbycraft the very next day. I then found this site and have tried all the tutorials and bought DVD's to learn from. This painting I have submitted is on Boldmere 230 g/m2 Acid free 80% cotton rich 390mm x 270mm paper and is my first attempt at painting something of my own, i.e not copying another artist, my daughter took me for a drive so I could take photograph's of the local countryside to paint from. I like the foreground and the way it slopes down making the barn look like it is sitting on a hill, I am not sure if my horizon is too high and the ploughed field in the middle ground should be flatter, I am very nervous about what people might think. I find painting gives me something just for me, but would welcome any constructive criticism or praise.
