This is the second time I have painted this scene. I love the area and can`t wait to get back there again and get painting. I have explained Willy Lotts Cottage before, but will do so again. Willy was a great Artist friend of John Constable. He gave Constable lessons in and around this Area. Willy lived in this Cottage and that is where it gets it`s name from. I also stayed in the Cottage for a week when I went there on a weeks painting course. Also I have stayed in Constables Fathers Mill. This Mill and the cottage now belongs to the National Trust and they use it to give lessons on not only Art, but most everything else. It`s a great place to stay.
This is nipper, my son and his partners first cat. Sadly, Nipper was taken from them when he was still young. they have wonderful memories of him though and have this painting as another reminder of him.
this drawing is just to fill in a gap. It`s a Norfolk Colt, obviously bred in Norfolk. I have done several paintings but I am not happy with them. It`s that rut that we all go through now and then, why?
I did this painting almost plein Air about four years ago. I still haven`t got anything fresh to post, so I thought I had better post something. I have painted several subjects but not happy with. I think I am going through that phase that we all go through occasionally.
I did This little painting in between doing a larger one. It only took me 1.5 hours to do. I just wanted a break from the one that I was painting. This little chap can`t make up his mind what to do about the ball.
This painting took me one hour to do and it was from a photo that Jill Berry gave me permission to use. As usual it is my interpritation of the subject and not a true likeness of the subject. Thank you jill.
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.
