I found this subject on the web. I really wanted to paint it because of the drawing practice. I`m not too happy with the drawing but reasonably happy with the colours. HARVESTING. My own title for the want of a better one.
Cherry Tree farm. I went to this farm several times a few years ago with a friend of mine who worked for Fords as a commercial artist. What a brilliant painter he was, I say was, because he isn`t with us any more.He was a lovely friend.
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.
