A wonderful summer 2014 has provided ample opportunity to get out and paint. Back in my studio on a very grey winter's day I still have lots of sketchbook work for inspiration. Workshops in my studio are available throughout the year, e-mail for details. I always work from the natural world and carry my camera and notebook with me. Watercolour notes and colour studies are then developed into large acrylic paintings - always trying to capture the spirit of place.
