David J Ainge

I am a retired university lecturer in teacher training, and my spare time has always involved making something, large or small. I have built two boats and two houses. Having finished my second house at age 70, I thought it was time to take it a bit easier, and after finishing another guitar, and writing cryptic crosswords, I have returned to art which has always interested me. I have combined my interests in teaching and art in the ArtStepByStep project, which aims to show people who feel they can’t draw how to paint realistic pictures, by means of detailed, step-by-step instructions.
