I have always wanted to learn to paint. My grandma painted watercolours and oils (I may post some pictures of them sometime) and as a girl I loved to sit and draw and paint with her. I did GCSE art and have done nothing since except doodling (winning a doodling competition a few years ago and meeting Christine Hamilton!!!)

Last year I bit the bullet and enrolled on a beginners art course, I'm now onto level 2 and LOVING it. Here is my latest - as yet unfinished - effort.

The picture below is my first and only finished and framed painting.

Any comments would be gratefully received - if anybody is out there reading!

Well done!! Both paintings look great.

I really like them both. The second (trees) is just gorgeous and I think you've done quite a good job with shadowing!
