I have been busy with my art so I haven’t blogged for a while. It’s strange but once you stop it is so hard to get going again. So I throw this out in the hope that I get my act together and start publishing again…
I had an amazing week on a course run by Angela Barbi in Girona, Spain recently. Her company is called EPC ( Enjoy Painting Catalonia ).
One of my watercolour heroes is Chein Chung-Wei and I was lucky enough to get on his course. Chien has been a teacher of watercolour technique for twenty years in Taipei, Taiwan. He was discovered on Facebook 3 or 4 years by the editor of “Art of Watercolour”, the magazine has regularly featured his work ever since. Surprised by the amount of international interest in his art he has been holding courses internationally now for a few years. He said his English wasn’t very good in the beginning but he has improved a lot since then. He is such an extrovert and quite eccentric, he uses his body a lot to explain what he means which helps his students understand. I had absolutely no problem understanding Chien and have been totally inspired by the experience.
In the next coming weeks I plan to post more about my time in Girona.
