Mini Daff`s and Terracotta Pot. 6x8 oils on board.
I did this painting this morning Ala prima. I applied thick paint over lean for which you have`to do with wet on wet paint. About one hour. Not that I rush the painting to get it done, I can`t work any slower.
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.
