Watercolour Lessons

A Little Personal History

Necessity and 12 years as a novice and monk in Chiang Mia temporarily interrupted my practice but early 2009 brought a renewed interest in watercolour and my first formal training in Bangkok.Upon returning to Chiang Mai in 2010 I began studying under renowned local artist Ajarn Thanakorn Chaijinda.
