I started painting 4 years ago, having never picked a brush up before in my life. I’ve had no training but right from the start I found that I could paint (it’s hard to explain!). These photos and video show the creation of my latest painting.

The painting was completed over a period of 3 months and took over 350 hours to paint, there are over 14,000 individually painted pebbles, also I painted every blade of grass and flower. At the moment I can only paint in my spare time (which I now spend all of painting!) and I’m hoping to be able to paint full time at some point in the future.
