I thought I would share this old photo of my Mum & Dad, on the top left is my Brother.
And on the right is my sister. This Photo was taken about 78 years ago. and we were Hop-picking. I`m at the top right. I love this photo because there is only my sister and I left.
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.
