From a very young age I have intermittantly scratched out drawings and daubed paint.
I have had no formal training in technique or composition. I suppose that most of my composition ability, for better or worse, has been derived from the use of the camera.
For the last decade most of my work has been done digitally using the Corel's Painter application.
However, since retiring a few years ago, I have resumed painting large scale works in acrylic and oil on canvas.
