Description Sunrise around the spire of the All Saints church in Newcastle, which years ago dominated the skyline (but is now sadly derelict and overshadowed by concrete). It still makes nice a nice sunrise!
Michael Batty, Durham Member Since July 2010 Artist Statement I am a former mathematician (I still dabble occasionally) and a computer programmer. Art helps me relax. I take many photographs and like to try to draw or paint every day if possible. I like landscapes and cityscapes, street scenes and effects of weather and light. Most of my paintings are watercolour, some with a lot of pencil, some with pen, or added pastel. I have also been using acrylics for a while, and just starting to try to learn how to do oils properly.
