"If you hear a voice within you say you cannot paint, then by all means paint...and that voice will be silenced." Vincent van Gogh
Here are a selection of paintings from Northern Beaches Watercolour students, who, through persistance and passion, practiced and painted, and produced some beautiful work. The LONGEST any have been painting is 2.5 years, with many having been in class less than 1 year! (Note, the are attributions where the painting was copied from another work." (in no order, just as I receive a copy so scroll!)
