St Nicholas Church is at Chislehurst. Harry and I went over there two weeks ago and did a sketch of it, this is the result from the sketch with the help of a photo. It`s a 12th Century Church. It stands in a big area of grass with some trees, and is opposite a lovely pub where we have been a couple of times for a meal. I`ll post a couple of shots of Harry and I there later.
Willy Lotts cottage again. I love this subject. I can`t stop painting it. The little window over to the right, is the bedroom where I stayed for a week on a painting course Many Years ago. Wonderful time had by all.
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.
