Have you ever wanted to paint, but not known where to start? Should you begin with water colour or oil? Or what
about tempera, acrylics, gouache - and what are they anyway? Would it cost a fortune? How much special
equipment would you need? Perhaps you paint already, and need advice on new techniques. John FitzMaurice Mills
is a painter and a teacher of painting. He is President of the Royal Drawing Society and a specialist in materials. You
can put your questions about techniques, materials, paint and painters to him. Sue MacGregor is in the Chair.
