This page of my gallery shows some of my work up to 2019.

I began painting using watercolour but almost always use artist's acrylic, or sometimes water based oil, now. I like the depth of colour that good quality acrylics give and they dry quickly which, for someone as impatient as I am, is a good thing. My style has evolved and is now more impressionistic. The use of large brushes has helped to stop me adding too much detail to my paintings and I am learning to add blocks of colour which add interest. I almost always use a red under paint and I like to allow small traces of the underpainting to show through the finished work. I tend to go straight in with painting and I am trying hard to train myself to prepare rigorously by using my sketch book more. My colleagues in Artseen encourage or sometimes bully me to achieve this aim.

The sizes quoted are the unframed or unmounted sizes unless otherwise stated. The process of choosing a frame is both lengthy and expensive and it may be, finally, a very personal decision. You'll also notice that some paintings are available as cards ; do contact me through the web site if you would be interested.
