I have always enjoyed painting and drawing but with career and family never made the time. Well, now my children are mostly grown, my career coming to an end and I'm running out of excuses. I want to: get trained (not sure how, degrees cost a hell of a lot); find a style, and; get to be good enough at it that other people want to buy my work. I live in Chester. My wife and I have set up a workroom, and in it I will be experimenting and planning how to meet the aims i have set myself. Any feedback or advice will be very welcome, the more honest the better.
