An Interview With Julia Underwood - March 2019
How does painting make you feel?
I don't think about anything else when I paint;
no problems, worries or pain, I'm totally
focused on what I'm doing. It brings me a real
sense of peace, these days they call it 'mindfulness'. Viewing art that I love can instil
the same feelings, I remember visiting the
Tate and seeing one of Monets' paintings of water lilies, it was a huge piece and beautiful, I
was entranced, theyíd kindly placed a bench
in front of it and I could have sat there all day.
