This man with several others was sitting in a street-I got the impression that they lived there. I had to be discreet when shooting as often these sort of people do not wish to have their photographs taken and I did not wish to disturb his his natural appearance.

Thanks Mike. I paint mainly for pleasure but have sold a few. The mediums I use are watercolours and oils.

Presently I'm doing ranges of old people with character and  children. I've done 2 of Leon Pelser's photos of children in oils. If you send me your e-mail adress I'll share some of my works with you. Rgs

Thanks for the news. I would love to see the finished art if you would be so kind. Do you paint as a pastime or do you exhibit and sell? Also should there be any other images you would like to paint just let me know. Do you have a preferred genre?

Hi Mike I did the photography course in the hope that I would be able to take some amazing photos to paint but I quickly realised that it will take me years to get there and that there are amazingly gifted photographers and then there are just photographers.

So I'll stick to painting and let you amazing photographers take the photos.

Thank you Michael and welcome-I am sure that you will learn a lot from this site. I certainly have. I strongly recommend that anyone wishing to improve their images uses LR. Of course PS is very powerful but I find LR does 95% of what editing I do. It is very much simpler to learn and use.
