I love painting en plein air in the countryside, either in watercolours or more recently in oils. There's very little in nature that I don't find inspirational but the way the light falls on the subject is generally my starting point. Even quite ordinary subjects can be beautiful if the light is right.
Back home I enjoy mixed media - starting with watercolour, adding collage, then acrylics and finally a touch of oil pastel or ink. Towns and man-made subjects seem to lend themselves to this approach - all those straight lines perhaps.
I exhibit upstairs in Tom's cafe in St. Ives (wonderful coffee and cakes!) adn twice a year with Cambridge Drawing Society in Cambridge. Lasy year (2018) I had work selected to hang in the professional exhibition at Patchings Art Festival run by "The Artist" magazine.
Visitors are welcome to browse paintings by appointment here in my Studio in Colne. There is no obligation to buy.
I continue to enjoy teaching adults in workshops and weekly classes. I welcome visitors to see paintings at home.
