I went with our Club to a place called Foots Cray Meadows. Every member seemed to be painting This lovely Bridge called Five Arches. Although in my painting you can only g
just see three Arches. But this is the angle that I wanted to paint it. I didn`t completely paint it there, I completed it In my studio. Yes Harry was there also.
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.
