My first post here!

I'm delighted to have been invited to join this wonderful group of artists.  I've been following it for 3 years since I first acquired an ipod for my 60th birthday.  I now have my own computer and the learning curve is huge!  I live in a beautiful part of France on the Cote de granite rose in Brittany. 
I love painting in watercolour and drawing but my favourite medium is coloured pencils which combine both colour and detail.  I have been keeping a sketchbook for 12 years now and really enjoy travelling and the opportunities to capture images from other places.  Although I went to art college in my teens it's only since retiring that I've had the time to devote to art.  Now I can draw to my heart's content!


  1. Welcome, Valerie, we're very glad to have you! I'm looking forward to seeing your posts...

  2. Beautiful! Colored pencils (and ink, too) are my favorite media. I look forward to seeing your posts!

  3. Welcome, Valerie! Looking forward to seeing more of your sketches.
