I have been drawing and painting since a boy but all of my previous work has been lost
Since retirement I have been focused on improving my skills and developing a portfolio of artwork I've got a ways to go yet...
I sketch in pencil, pastels, and watercolor a little
but most of my work is in acrylics on canvas
Just recently I have started working in oils but the bloody stuff won't dry quickly enough!
I tend to use my own photographs for subject matter, often using Photoshop to create an initial composition.
I do not strive for realism in my art. What is "real", after all? I paint what see and feel in my imagination. Color is very important to me - it often amazes me how we "create color" in our minds, but it doesn't exist in the world.
