During a short holiday at the Manor House Hotel in Okehampton I had my first lesson in Watercolour painting. It was a simple workshop where the teacher showed the different Watercolour techniques and we were able to have a go and try them out. Following this great holiday I started taking Watercolour lessons where I learned a lot of the techniques. The lessons were not just about learning painting and drawing, but they were also a dedicated time to paint and relax from a busy stressful week. It also taught me to look at things in a different way and to appreciate natures colours and shapes. I recommend painting to anyone who likes creating.
