Brenda's Paintings

I have been attending Adult Education Painting and Drawing classes for several years now,
originally to improve my drawing skills for lace design but it has become a hobby in its own right.
I have tried using most mediums; acrylic is perhaps the most successful and I like using ink and wash for quick sketches.

Recently I have been using my iPad for producing artwork.

Here are a few of my more successful pictures.
Please be patient whilst they load.
