In the absence of a painting, I thought I would post these lovely Models of Vintage Cars. The first one is a 1938 Jaguar SS-100. The second is a 1935 Mercedes 500K. the third is a 1930 Duesenberg Tourster. And the last one is a 1907 Rolls Royce Silver cloud. They are all precission made models made by Franklin Mint. At the time they cost around £80 each. That was a lot of money in 1980 when I bought them but I love them.
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.
