I painted this Tractor from a photograph that I took after completing the Windmill
at West Kingsdown. As we were on our way out of the field, the Farmer had just hitched
this contraption to the back of the Tractor and was doing something to the back of it, I couldn`t resist the opportunity to paint it.
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.
