for Tony Stubbs

Working part time as lecturer(electronic engineering), but try to keep my hand in.
No real formal training , but copious encouragement by inspiring art teacher has has kept me motivated even after over forty years!
I like to work in many mediums, acrylic, watercolour, pastel, ink, pencil, coloured pencil, charcoal etc and sometimes experiment with mixing with various degrees of success.

All the time....so hard painting black and getting the highlights correct. I now paint (acrylics) in brown tones under neath then layer in the black. Someone... view answer
