Way back when I started teaching art for the local people in our community, I had to teach them about colour. That in itself, is a science you have to understand and experiment with until you instinctively know which colour to use for the desired effect.

Living in a small town community we had limited access to art materials now, any artist would know when the urge to draw hits you, you can’t wait. You have to (in my case) put pencil to paper. My only regret with this work is that I didn’t use proper art colour pencils but ordinary stationery. These form a waxy layer and the result is that you can’t get the intensity of colour you want. When next we had a trip to the city, I bought myself a proper set of Derwent colouring pencil’s.

So here she is, a practical lesson in drawing and colour…
