Mixed media artist based in Wendover, Buckinghamshire, UK, working in Oil, Acrylic, Ink and Watercolour and specialising in landscapes, townscapes and portraiture.
I have been painting most of my life and, apart from a college course many years ago, I regard myself as largely self-taught. I have no hangup about this - I think an artist learns their skills from many sources, and is always learning new things at every stage of their career.
Have recently returned to my old love of portraiture and been honing my skills a bit - mainly by means of the excellent books on the subject by Chris Saper and Suzanne Brooker, but also taking advantage of the wealth of instructional material to be found on the internet.
Nothing like actually...
