Another quickie. Yesterday afternoon painting. Thoroughly enjoyed painting this one. Sky painted first, then whilst it was still wet, I painted the Horse and rider, no preliminary drawing just straight in with the painting, then the trees. by the time I went back to do this and that, it took me an hour from start to finish. I`m never proud of doing a painting so quick or so long, it`s what I ever fancy doing at the start. I mention the time factor because that is the sort of information that I always like from other Artist`s. 8x8" on Stretched Canvas.
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.
