For as long as I can remember; art has played a big part in my life. I have always enjoyed drawing and painting, but have not been able to paint seriously until retiring in 2014. I love colour and the play of light and shade on people and places. I have tried to combine these features of my work and to capture informal moments of children at rest or play in this series of watercolour/gouache paintings. I hope that you like them as much as I have enjoyed painting them.
