I draw my inspiration from the forces of nature, the rain, wind, air, mist, rock formations and atmospheric changes in the landscape. In my childhood, I was always fascinated by the dramatic and mystical elements within our natural world.

Spring time in Normandy 2019

It was a very good start to my stay in Normandy, the weather was warm and sunny perfect for Spring time.  The beautiful fresh colours of the landscape, bright vivid yellows of the rapeseed fields were magic to see. I was inspired and motivated by the vast and continuous landscape before me.  I made several watercolour sketchbook studies of the scenery around Les Aspres village and other areas.

I hope eventually to develop the paintings into larger works and experiment with the ideas using different mediums. Here are some of the studies below.

Fragments of Light

Here are some recent sketchbook watercolour studies that I made during a trip to the Peak District. The landscape was very inspiring; views from high up on the hills looking down and across into the distance, the light changing rapidly creating atmospheric conditions. It was a challenge to try and capture the mood of the moment in a short space of time, definitely will be returning soon.
