Barges India. I painted these Barges from a loose Leaf in a Book that I have all about Thames Barges ect`. There is no write up of them, no info` at all. It looks as if they are in India, I`m just guessing, sorry. I have had permission to paint from this book in writing, so I am okay on that point.
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.
