It is only since my retirement around 3 years ago that I have concentrated my leisure time more on art having spent most of my working life in engineering. I love painting in oils as this medium seem to offer the best range of colours but I also use acrylic and watercolour. Recently I have experimented in mixed media with a certain amount of success in sales of my pictures. I’ll paint plain air in good weather but shy away from this in cold winter months. It’s really good to receive complementary feed back from readers and I thank all the people who have liked and commented so far.
