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.
This will probably be the last Packhorse Bridge painting. Actually it is the same bridge as bridge 3, but much more included,also it is at a different angle to 3. Now I would like to ask anybody that is interested, to tell me whether I should add Figures to it, or leave well alone. Please give me your opinion, thank you.
Another Packhorse Bridge, the third one I believe, I`ve lost count. This is probably the last one for the time being. This Bridge is situated again in Watendlath L/D. And it is where you can get some refreshments, you will need them. My Art club will be having an Exhibition in two weeks time and I will be exhibiting these paintings.
This is a beautiful spot. Further up the hill is a little shack that sells light refreshments and drinks. You need refreshments after walking all this way from the main road to the top. But we cheated, we had our Car. I shale be painting another packhorse bridge that is at the very top. There is several Buildings up there, so I shale be painting a couple of those as well. Obviously, we couldn`t drive over this bridge, they were only built for Packhorses. There is a dirt road that you can use.
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.
