Welcome, Paul Dodd

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 also now post on #pauldddo  on instagram

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

That Rusty sure is a character. Did Woody have fun with the foxes?

Hey Paul

Yes those heavy horses are a real thing of beauty as they give their all when cultivating the fields. I saw a 6 horse hitch this year....a thing of beauty.  I think I have a painting of it I will have to find. 

Thanks again Paul

Thank you Paul for the comments on Ghosts & Wildebeeste.  My view is the G is silent but I will point out that I have always called them Wildebeeste. It is thought that Gnu is from the Xhosa people's language.

Can't remember if crash helmets were the law back when I had my wipe-out,I was about 16 or 17 at the time and had nothing much of value in my head worth protecting way back then!!

Storage of canvas can be an issue my friend.....I seem to paint on panel or paper to accomodate less storage as it can be an issue as you said. 

Always enjoy your work and of course the wonderful narrative stories my friend.

Hey Paul

We were just talking about that the other is an entirely different environment from our generation.  My kids gave me that blank stare for years. 

John :)
