The year 2020 has certainly offered us more options to be creative, travel and see friends and families again. How lovely it was to be able to meet up last summer and venture to some of my favourite painting locations. The Spring course in Sicily was unfortunately still out of bounds, but the later painting weeks in Scotland, Devon and Spain went ahead full steam. Sadly the delightful art school in Olhao, Portugal, had to close down and will be very much missed in my painting calendar. I'd like to say thank you to all my wonderful colleagues in Portugal, who made our many painting weeks such a memorable experience.
Plans for next year are looking different as I am postponing most courses to 2023 when I hope the travel restrictions will be fewer, better organised and of course less costly.
I hope very much that you will keep on painting regardless of restrictions and obstacles and continue to let the paints flow into a kaleidoscope of forms and colours. Below are a few watercolours painted at past painting courses which might spur you on to keep painting, refresh your memory and inspire you to explore your colour palette.
I wish you a wonderful time over the festive season and a very happy New Year,
