Greenwich Church.I did this painting years ago. I did a sketch of it and a photograph. I always try to do the painting from the sketch, but never succeed. I have`to refer to the photograph. I might have a go at doing it again from this painting. I haven`t got the photo anymore.
P.S. Mind you I had`to paint the Chiddingstone Oast`s fron a pencil sketch.
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.
