I kept trying and practicing and things got a little better. Barbara found free portrait classes thru the local community college and I got to practice painting live models.
Then I stumbled across www.paintbasket.com and immediately started making major improvements. I started painting motorcycle portraits and I have my own website http://scouserl41.wix.com/brian-downing that shows some of my work.
I really enjoy drawing and painting, I love to talk about my work too so feel free to stop and talk if you see me out under the awning slapping paint on a canvas.
I painted this portrait of Bob and De with the Rexhall
Bob passed away about 4 years ago.
I gave this to De as a token of how delighted we were that she let us buy her rig.
We'll take care of it and enjoy it De.
