Profile Information

I started painting for the first time at the age of 56 in april 2015   I just paint for fun and relaxation, I'm retired and I'm not hoping to start a new career.  I hope some people like what I've been doing as its bit of a mix of styles.

On top of my acrylics painting . I've now decided in mid august 2016 to give watercolour painting a try with adults paints, my only attempts were with the grandchildrens none staining poster paints

Normally what I post has been painted on the day but it's not uncommon for me to do more than one painting in a day often they're still wet when I scan them for posting

I also lots of little sketches while out and about

I've started to put all my paintings in one place on Facebook I'm going to post all of them even the ones that don't  work out. https://www.facebook.com/pauldddo.painting

I've also put some high speed of video's of some of my Paintings on you tube...https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL4uD38tQsxheiO8OF2LXqGoc5kIFE3T_O

Hi Paul, I looked on youtube too when I first started using pastels because I had no idea how to use them. I haven't been using pastels very long, like I have paintings or colored pencils, but I think they're a lot of fun and I can do them quicker. Good luck with it and I hope it works out for you!

Hi Paul, I've tried lots of different papers too and finally I came up with these 3 for pastels...Canson Mi Tientes pastel paper, Pastelmat, and Strathmore pastel paper. You might even like to use the firm pastel (sticks)..they are less messy and dusty. Otherwise, I use the soft pastels along with pastel pencils. The pencils might be something you'd like, hardly no dust with those. You can do an entire painting using just the pencils. I have the CarbOthello pastel pencils that I bought on Amazon and they're real nice. I don't use fixative because I've been told by several artists that it can change the colors of your pastels.
