I have painted this subject before, so I have painted it again to see if I could go about it in a different way.
I think it has worked out a better painting than the first attempt. This scene is in Norwich where my Son lives. we went for a walk to see if there were any subjects that I fancied painting. I spotted this one with another possible subject for which I have already painted it.
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.
