Painting is a fantastic way to say something without having to use words. The process for Renata Wright is the best part, rather than the outcome.

Every time she puts brush to paper, mixes a new colour, or draws a new picture in preparation for a painting, she is excited about the journey she is taking, and wondering with great anticipation what she will experience on the way.

Renata’s inspiration comes from the eight-legged critters in this world – arachnids! She is fascinated by them and the homes they create, and she has chosen to study them through her art. Renata also has a “day job” – her other art love, and that is teaching watercolour classes. She loves sharing her techniques and knowledge, and students learn “normal” subjects in her classes like landscapes, seascapes, still life, flowers, animals, buildings, and so on.

Her focus in class is to not only share what she knows, but to also provide an atmosphere where students can escape from the rest of the world for a while.
