I haven`t been able to get to my studio for some time now due to an extention to it. Rain also has held things up. I thought that I would show something, so here is something. I should have made a painting of it instead of a photo. Then again, the weather has been terrible and I couldn`t get to my paints.
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.
