this portrait is of fluffy. it was My Son Vic and ali`s loving Cat. She passed away a couple of weeks ago. She was very muched loved. They got her from a home about six years ago.
She had a loving Life for that period of time. My Son asked me to do this portrait of her, and I jumped at the chance.
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.
