This is Boycee, not brucy as I called him when I posted my Sketch of him. It is my Son`s Alsation, and he sent me a photo of him, and I couldn` resist painting this lovely dog. You can`t see his back paws because they were not in the photo, so I made out that they were buried in the snow.
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.
