This is a blogger friend`s back garden. He posted some photos of his garden showing a lovely robin watching him trim his trees. The garden was crying out to be painted. So I asked him if I could post in on my Blog, and he agreed. To tell you the truth, he loved the painting, honest. it pleased me no end.
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.
