BUSY SUMMER

08/10/2019

Its certainly been busy these past few months. The exhibitions at Malmesbury and Lacock were very enjoyable and well received by the crowds of visitors. And in between all the painting I managed to get across to Norfolk for the 'A Brush With The Broads 2019' event to participate in the full 5-day programme of events with over 30 other keen plein-air artists. It has been great fun!

CATALONIA ROADTRIP

I have just returned from a tour of Catalonia, visiting many interesting places with very picturesque old towns, castles and churches. The light was fantastic for painting and the people were very welcoming too. I have a pile of sketches made on location and lots of photographs for inspiration, I'll now be using all that material to craft some studio paintings, I'll add them to the gallery section as they are completed.
