Bowen Williams


I am 85 years old and took up painting in 2021 as a result of COVID. Jigsaws were no longer filling my time satisfactorily so decided to try my hand at painting. In my early years in engineering I was a draughtsman so hopefully I have an eye for perspective. Decided to use acrylics in the believe they are more forgiving than watercolour but having attempted the Snow scene project from the March issue will try to develop my ability in both media. Lacking creative inspiration I have so far concentrated on trying to interpret photographs as best I can. Not yet found a preferred subject area but enjoy landscapes and painting British birds.
