I painted this subject this afternoon with the three primaries + White, and a touch of Sap green. I decided to experiment with these colours. I didn`t know what i was going to paint but started off with the suggestion of a tree and this is how it ended up. Half of it was done with a palette knife. I am going to use the three primaries again to produce some lovely greys.
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.
