Recent Work

I have been re-evaluating Gouache for still life painting. Although different to oils, I am finding ways to achieve the effects that I want. Neocolor Pastels are closely related to gouache and I have been using them for sketching.


The interior of public bars and the performance of session musicians make an interesting subject.


Sketching is important, there is no pressure to create a considered painting. Try out different media and keep your equipment to a minimum.


Exmoor can be a wild and windswept place, with highland cattle and ponies roaming free. I particularly like it in autumn and early winter.

Lizard Penninsular

The Lizard has many interesting places for a painter. It has rugged cliffs, surfing beaches and small harbours.
