This is a painting that was done through my Tutor Andy Walker. This is his website Address--www.learntodo.co.uk. It is a brilliant site for learning for beginners, and even for none beginners and professionals. Visit his site it will be worth it for you. I did this mainly from a photo he supplied and instructions but put in my own way of painting as well.
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.
