Recent studio work
Watercolour paintings derived from memories of landscape. Several works are available to purchase. Enquire via contact page.

 

What I aim for in the paintings is less a representation of a single view and more an accumulation of memories of looking, of being there or travelling through, from source materials that might include sketchbook studies, photographs and images in my own mind/memory.  A pictorial equivalent of visual sensation. The places I most frequently ‘re-visit’ in this way are the Scottish Highlands, Canadian Rockies, the journey over the Pennines on the M62, and more recently, walking in the local landscape around Leigh, Wigan and Rivington.
