Some years ago, at a time when I was becoming temporarily disillusioned with photography, I started painting with oils, tempera and watercolour.
Inspiration? Too much even to try mentioning. A couple of artists who I like mention though are Andrew Wyeth, just admire his style a lot and Peter Poskas, whose style I also admire, but whose book also gave me very practical guidance when starting to paint with oils.
