This is a beautiful spot. Further up the hill is a little shack that sells light refreshments and drinks. You need refreshments after walking all this way from the main road to the top. But we cheated, we had our Car. I shale be painting another packhorse bridge that is at the very top. There is several Buildings up there, so I shale be painting a couple of those as well. Obviously, we couldn`t drive over this bridge, they were only built for Packhorses. There is a dirt road that you can use.
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.
