OIL PAINTING

Starting in May 2016 my paintings began with a number of tasks; could I paint a cloud, the sea, a beach, plants etc.

I’ve tried to vary the subjects just to see what suits me.  Landscapes, seascapes, people, animals.  I seem to be leaning towards famous people.  These really have to be right.  

The enjoyment I get out of my new(ish) found hobby cannot be underestimated.  I sometimes surprise myself when I discover that one stroke of the brush can make a painting ‘right’.  I’m learning as I go and the journey’s getting interesting!

                 When I moved to       Spain in 2015 I bought a   small apartment which would allow me time to see if Spain was for me.


Now, with my place established in the area of Algorfa I’ve moved to a 3-bedroom house with front and side gardens in Castillo de Montemar, opposite La Finca Golf Resort.


My new home has space to move around in, a room I can use as my studio/office and a terrace garden.


The place was a little ‘tired’, but structurally sound.  The house needed decorating throughout; kitchen and bathroom re-vamps and finally a big clean-up!


After two months I finally moved in and I’m feeling the difference already.   Time to relax and hit the pool!
