Cottage in a landscape. Palette Knife. 12x10,Oils on board,
I have already posted this subject before. But this one was done with a palette Knife. I wasn`t rushing it, ( or was I? ). It took me about an hour to paint it. It was very cold. and I wanted to get back in the warm again.
I started painting around 1990 and loved it straight away.
I started with watercolour,and then after about 15 years I moved to Oils and acrylics. I still paint the odd watercolour to keep my hand in so to speak. I love impressionism. The only time I use detail is when I paint portraits. Otherwise it is my interpretation of the subject.
I am retired but still find it hard to find time to paint. I reckon I can manage to do a painting about three times a week.
Originally I was a Motor Mechanic. Then, for the eighteen years leading up to my retirement, I worked
for Barclays bank.
