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.

I've also put some high speed of video's of some of my Paintings on you tube...

Hi Paul.  Yes the strip steel from Ravenscraig went to Linwood Car Plant.  It was a Brave New World we thought we were building but a sign of the times is that the steel that was used for the New Queensferry Crossing had to be imported.  Ravenscraig is about maybe 20 miles or so from the new Queensferry Crossing.

Paul...thnaks again for the comments  and sounds like you have been listening to some pretty cool music (songs and balads) of the steelworkers trade.

Thanks again my friend.

Hi Paul, I listened to one of the tracks on You Tube and I was amazed at the similarity of the stories told by the workers and their families.  Only the accents were different but the tales were the same.  I had to smile when I saw the men wearing caps. Ravenscraig made strip steel which was exported all over the world.  Happy days!!!!

Morning Paul.  Thanks for the info about the Steel Man's Ballads.  I am sure I will find it interesting.  I have taken part in several documentaries regarding Ravenscraig Steelworks which closed in 1992.  It was interesting to take part in them and it was good to recall the "old days" as it were.   The men who worked in the steelmaking had to work in hellish conditions.  I don't think any of them are available at the moment but the one I took part in for BBC Radio Scotland is in the Scottish Archives.  I have a painting I did for my late husband of the BOS Plant Vessel pouring molten metal (his job)  It is behind glass but I will see if I can get a decent photo and post it.  Enjoy your day I am going to try and get a bit of painting done but the kitchen floor needs mopped first.
