ln 1956 I obtained the U.K. equivalent of a matric pass in art. This unremarkable event brought to an end my formal art training.
For the next 63 years, I became, like many others, an occasional weekend painter, using the age-old method of self-taught, namely trial and error. Landscapes and townscapes are my preferred subjects. However, in 2019 I closed my architectural practice in Somerset West and began to paint on a much more regular basis.
I feel that this has steadily improved the quality of my work, which hopefully, can continue. My only problem is that I might be running out of time!
