I did this painting last wednesday morning. My friend and I went to a local subject near by. He did a painting looking the other way to me. I settled for this Church. I wasn`t too sure whether to post it or not. But a dear blogger friend of mine liked it, and convinced me to post it as it is. I usually complete my plein air paintings at home. Also a close friend called in to see us and she liked it also. So here it is.
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.
