this painting is of an American Farm. My friend Mariano sent me a photo of if and I really fancied painting it. It was ages ago and seeing that I haven`t got any to post at the moment, i thought that i would post it.
US Army scrapped Waggon. A blogger friend in America sent me some photos of scrapped planes and waggons. She painted them herself Plein Air. She did a fantstic job painting them. this is my effort, not a patch on her work.
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.
