My interest in art was sparked at an early age when, as a child back in the 70s, I began watching the ITV television series Paint Along With Nancy. I was fascinated by these 30-minute programmes.
Nancy’s unusual method of painting and her amusing, unscripted commentaries really appealed to me. Her colour mixing tips were so easy to follow. Nancy taught me, and I am sure many other aspiring artists, the basics of composition and perspective. Do take a look a one of her short programmes.
