When having a break from painting the Bridge at Aylesford, I walked along the towpath, (I think that`s what you call it) I spotted this subject and it was just about to rain, so I took a photo of it in the hope I could do a painting from it. It really did look this overcast.
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.
