We have had a fresh fall of Snow. Apart from another five photos after this lot, that will be the end of Snow. Those who are interested in these Snow photos, must be feeling not only fed up but very cold looking at them. I haven` been able to paint due to the fact that my studio is too cold to be in there at the moment. It is too costly to have the heater on for too long.
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.
