Packhorse Bridge with Figure. 12x17, oils on board.
This is an update of my painting- Packhorse bridge 4. I have added a figure to it. Two of my followers made a suggestion, one said that it is fine without it, and the other said the same, but try adding a figure. I decided to see what it would look like with a figure. I can soon erase it if necessary.
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.
