I recently finished a new painting of Regent Street in the rain, from the same viewpoint of the previous painting. There aren’t many spots on Regent Street that I find appealing from a compositional perspective, so stuck with this for a second go. It’s nice to get all those very British things in one scene; the taxi, the letterbox and the London bus. The “Super Dry” sign, not so classically British, but it’s part of the place, so in it goes.

I recently finished a new painting of the sun cutting across Whitehall in December. The traffic was busy coming up towards Trafalgar Square, with cyclists overtaking buses and brake lights glowing in the shadows.

As always, if anything is of interest, please get in touch.

I recently finished two new paintings of London, one of Regent Street in the rain in December with all the Christmas lights above the street and another painting of Camden Lock Bridge in the sun. I’m really enjoying painting in this larger square format, many more to come.

As always, if anything is of interest, please get in touch.

I was delighted to win three awards this weekend at The Artist painting competition held at the annual Patchings Festival near Nottingham. I won the top prize which was a purchase prize, The Royal Talens Award of £250 of art materials and thirdly, an exhibition in 2018 at Patchings. I was pretty chuffed to get 3 awards for one painting, so thank you to Ken Howard RA who was judging.

I had a few days plein air painting down in Cornwall recently around St Ives, Mousehole and Penzance. The original plan was to paint some beaches at St Ives but it was so hot and so bright that the white sand literally blinded me when I took my sunglasses off to paint so I had to abandon a lot of paintings, which was very frustrating. I got some done in the end though at Mousehole and Penzance, looking over at St Michaels mount. Lovely spot, that.

Here’s the work. If anything is of interest, do get in touch.

I had a wonderful 3 day trip to Cornwall recently and painted in Padstow, Polzeath, Daymer Bay and Bedruthan steps. It’s an amazing area and you’re completely spoilt for choice, with wonderful coastline in all directions.

Here’s all the works.

I had a wonderful plein air painting trip up Pen y Fan in the Breacon Beacons in Wales last week. I’ve wanted to take all my painting gear to the summit for years now so thought I better just get on with it. I chose a nice clear day and set off really early, arriving at 7:30am to clear skies. I painted one on the way up, one from the summit of the first peak, Corn Du and then climbed up to Pen y Fan for lunch and the view. I finally did a third painting on the way down and then a forth from the valley, looking out over Cantreft Reservoir.

All in all a wonderful trip! Here’s the paintings. If you have any questions of purchase enquiries please drop me an email. Many thanks.

I had two days in Brixham, near Torquay and Dartmoor recently. I am hugely fond of the moor, having spent many a family holiday there as child. It’s a truly wild place and so peaceful. I couldn’t resist having lunch at the Warren House inn, the best pub in the U.K (fact) where I devoured are rather good burger with a wonderful view.

Brixham was a challenge. I was painting Broadsands beach for a commission, but the sun was in the “wrong place” when I arrived, so I had to wait all day for it to swing around. But swing around it did and cast a wonderful warm glow across the beach. I painted fast and managed to get it finished with about ten minutes to spare before the sun disappeared over the horizon. I rather enjoy those panicky moments.

I experienced an impromptu  style change on Dartmoor for some reason and decided to go with it. It happens sometimes and in this instance, helped me considerably as the sun was in, out, in, out, making things rather difficult to capture in my usual way. I love how the roads look on Dartmoor. There are so few of them that they carve a wonderful snaking line through the landscape, so I decided to make it part of the composition.

Here’s the paintings!
