I love exploring the outdoors – always researching for my paintings, which try to evoke the fresh air feeling of being there in colour, light and shadows, with naturalistic or semi-abstract approaches. Galloway seascapes predominate: atmospheric, dramatic mountains views from the Highlands and Cumbria also feature.
What to expect: Work in progress-at times I will be painting. Reference material including short videos of the location, to see the place as if being there. Further insight into process: studies, experiments, completed miniatures (many available to purchase from £5!). Bargains and competition to win a print!
