Yvonne’s Painting – ‘The River Awakens’

We asked students on our Facebook page if anyone would like to be featured on our blog with a favourite piece of work they had completed during their course. We have received some lovely feedback from the Facebook post and this is our first student to email! If you would like to be featured here, drop us a line at techsupport@londonartcollege.co.uk


I studied the Watercolour Diploma with Jan Nesbitt finishing a few months ago with a distinction. The painting here is one of my final pieces.The title of it is ‘The River Awakens’ and it was inspired by the very spiritual morning ceremony on the Ganges in Varanasi.

Many of my paintings are inspired by my travels or the natural world around where I live in Ireland. I painted a lot as a child and young adult but then took a 35 year break coming back to it around three or four years ago.
