I am 44 years old. I started painting about 2 years ago while I was working in the UK. I resigned from my job as a biomedical scientist last year to look after my elderly mother in the north of Thailand. I had not been painting actively until recently. I have done less than 20 paintings so far. One technique that I use is Mark Carder's colour checking. I can not see any other techniques that can give accurate colour and tone.
I am trying to push my painting to another level from just a hobby. I know it is a long way off. Am I too ambitious? I have uploaded my most recent paintings for you all to see. Positive and negative comments and advises are welcomed. I hope to upload more paintings in near future.
Best wishes and thank you.
