I am very much a self taught painter other than as a boy watching my father who was an excellent portrait painter. I painted a lot in the 1980's and completed a number of commissions including one or two Crufts winners (The dogs that is !). Painting time became scarce and I put the easel away for quite some time while pursuing other interests. I retired from that three years ago and found myself dusting off the easel again. I hope there is something that is enjoyable to someone.
