Location: United States
My name is Netta Pickering.
I was born in Northern Ireland and came to America in 1956. I have been drawing since I was a young child.
I have had no formal training of any kind other than in secondary school. I have painted in oils, acrylics, watercolors and pastels, I am currently working in Soluble Oils, I have done some commissioned work from time to time.
I paint mostly with Soluble Oils. I am hoping to do some oils in the future. I will paint almost any subject if it interests me!
I painted this from a photo I took in 2006
This is my daughter, a ballroom dancer with her instructor. She has been in many National Competitions.
My daughter lives on a lake in Florida, and I photographed these geese there.
This is a beautiful Alpine Scene, done in watercolor.
I saw this dog sitting the driver's seat looking like he belonged there, and couldn't resist taking his photo! this was on Cape Cod.
I painted this in my husband's hospital room. It is watercolor.
I took this photo many years ago, the giraffe had his toes over the edge of the pond and only his tongue could reach the leaves!
This was my daughter's dog who ran away during a thunderstorm.
I aksed this young indian to pose for me, which he graciously did. I later made him some Indian shirts!
