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...https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL4uD38tQsxheiO8OF2LXqGoc5kIFE3T_O

They must be doing something right in Southern Ireland with something like 7.5 % economic growth per.year.and rated 4or 5 wealthiest country in the world GDP.My son and I were very impressed with all the new highways and how prosperous it looked.of course I'm sure there is poverty there to like everywhere else!

Thanks Paul I didn't know that about Aran sweater patterns that's very interesting,sadly though all those old customs seem to be lost in this modern digital world!!My son and I drove up the Wild Atlantic Way on the West Coast of Ireland this past February could hardly believe all the top of the line cars everyone seemed to be driving around in!Still some very peaceful little places left in that part of the world.   Take care,  P.J.

 storytelling is art.  i took a class wherever i could as a young woman, but when you're young what's most  important is earning money. sadly art doesn't make most folks money.  it doesn't offer health, dental or prescrips.  so it may be your first love, but it gets pushed back. over time i had the op to indulge various art forms and make cash. but since retirement, i don't have to fit it in. i get to do any form that i please. i hope you continue and enjoy.
