No Fish in there, Shoreham Bridge. 9x12, oils on Board.
No Fish in there was painted right at the foot of the bridge. We were standing ( Note the standing bit Michael) on a small area where four local residents pay £30 a year to park their cars there. We were praying that none of them wanted to park there. One of them came out and chatted to us for around 15min, I couldn`t get on with my painting.
I meant to post some photos with this, but I will upload them after.
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.
