Hi, I'm Jimmy Davison and I'm a self taught amateur artist, I've been painting since 1990 and have tried most of the mediums but have settled with mainly pastels, some acrylics and an odd water colour. I am 80 years of age , still enjoying life, but i'm not doing much painting at this moment in time . I still have a reasonably steady hand and I always paint in fine detail, I think "what looks good close up will always look good from a distance", I guess that's because of my engineering background which I did all my life. How lucky I feel to live here in the North East of England where we are spoilt for choice for landscapes or seascapes to paint. I am a member of a wonderful art club and I look forward to every Friday morning where I get to meet wonderful self minded people.
