In most cases I never know what I am going to paint often starting with a background of colour and then just look at it for a couple of days. On a small A4 board I began by painting it black. In the FB group Reference Photos for Artists in Devon I stumbled across a stunning image of an old rusty ferry boat. I knew instantly that this was the image for my painting. I set to work and loved the result so posted the painting with the image I used to the FB page where I sourced the image and paid thanks to the person who took the photograph 'Angela Hale'. A few minutes later Angela replied and said how much she loved the painting. She is now the owner of the painting after her husband secretly contacted me and bought it for her. It now lives with them on their Narrow Boat in Wales. Lovely storey don't you think.
