Seven Sisters are the cliffs in this painting, and it gets it`s name because there are seven Cliffs. In this position You can`t see the separations, but further to your right about half a mile you can see them. The two cottages origionally belonged to the Coastguard, but now I think are private residences.
Another Shoreham painting. It is certainly a lovely area for subjects. Some years ago I was sketching by this Bridge and a Priest came up to me and asked me if I was an Artist, of course I said yes. Whether he belived me or not I don`t know. But I was happy anyway.
I have already posted this subject before. But this one was done with a palette Knife. I wasn`t rushing it, ( or was I? ). It took me about an hour to paint it. It was very cold. and I wanted to get back in the warm again.
This House is as it is called,Bills House. An American friend of mine sent me some Photos of his House after 25" of snow fell. I really fancied doing a painting of this particular shot. Bill gave me permission to do so and to post it on my blog. He likes it and I hope my blogger friends do also.
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.
