It is only since my retirement a few 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.
