Welcome to my Blog

I am pleased to welcome you to my blog and though I am a complete novice when it comes to blogging I am excited by the possibilities it presents and look forward to showing you my work, the work that some of my students produce and to answering any questions you may have about aspects of the work, techniques used or just discussing painting and drawing.

2016 Successes

Toward Bourton on the Water

I am very proud to tell you that the oil painting above is 16 x 12 inces on a stretched canvas and was painted earlier this year, has won the Light, Space and Time Gallery Landscape painting of the year 2016 it was selected from a total of 738 paintings from 28 Countries. My second success for the year so far is that the painting below 'Ox-Eye Daisies' will be featured on the front cover of the SAA's  'Paint' magazine in May which includes a two page interview. I wonder what the rest of the year might bring?  I love my job, in May I'm off to France running a painting holiday in the Dordogne come back for a week then it's off to Glencoe leading a Landscape painting holiday for HF Holidays. No peace for the wicked!
