My name is Rita Donovan and I live in Romsey, Hampshire.
I have been painting in watercolour for some years now, and from very early on I realised this was the medium for me.
With my very keen interest in gardening and flowers particularly, painting flowers in watercolour, just seemed to be the next step.
I would not say that watercolour painting is easy, but I consider it to be one of the most difficult mediums, but once mastered, the results can be breathtaking.
I am a member of Romsey Art Group and I am also a member of the Society of Floral Painters who exhibit nationally.
My paintings can be seen locally at Lee Gallery Romsey, First Floor Gallery Romsey and various exhibitions at Chichester, Bursledon, Titchfield and of course Denmead.
I also demonstrate annually at the Romsey Show.
