David Matthews

From high seas to Watercolours.......

I spent 29 years as a Royal Navy Officer, then 16 years as a golf club manager/secretary.  In all that time I only did sketching in pencil/pen and ink.

On retirement my family purchased for a full watercolour set and that started my love for that medium which has remained with me all that time.  I went to classes to learn about the basics.

I find it the most exciting of painting mediums as at times it seems to have a mind of its own, and I love the transparency and the possibility to paint in a loose style.
