Harry and I at Kelsey Park. At last a lovely day. We spent a couple of hours in this park and it was a fantastic.
couple of hours. Ducks, Swans and Canada Geese. and people coming up to us asking this and that. One lady with a little girl asked me if she could show the little girl the painting. I said sure but it isn`t completed yet, but she was pointing out things on the painting and explaining what it was. I said she`s probably not interested in the painting, but the lady said she is, and she will explain everything to her mum when she gets home.
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.
