This Acer, (maple bush) is in my back garden and is usually dark purple all year round but has changed to this wonderful Autumn colour over the last few weeks.
Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ19 with a slight touch of HDR.

My main interest is painting Aviation Art.
I get a lot of enjoyment researching the historical background behind the picture I’ve been commissioned to paint.
I work in acrylic on my big paintings on canvas board but use water colors, pastels, soft and oil, for smaller pieces.
I also enjoy doing pet portraits in soft pastels on tinted paper, from photographs. Ideal presents for Xmas and birthdays.
