Hi, I retired from mental health nursing after 34 years, so what now? I have descovered painting and am told that im rather ok at it
I love love love painting and spend hours looking for inspirational images which inspire me.
I paint different land and seascapes, from moody beach scenes to meadows filled with flowers. I am always on the look out for different images to paint, love using punchy colours to express the subject material.
I am self taught having always admired pastel art work from the great masters such as Degas and Monet. Taking this up later in life means I have the time to learn and hone the craft. I predominantly use soft pastels but also incorporate acrylic for texture and detail.
Before painting I spent a lot of time exercising and have always enjoyed this, painting has rather taken over as my passion!
I am hoping to be able to show my paintings at fairs and perhaps some kind people would like to buy them.
