King Pool.

Water colour 7"x8". It was the colours reflected in the water, even on a run of the mill winter's day.

Nearly Home

Water colour 10"x8".

River Lyd.

Water colour 9"x8". I have walked past this scene hundreds of times yet when I settled down to it I noticed that peculiar pale tree for the first time.

Nearly Home

Water colour 10"x8". Those trees up close - rather menacing I felt.
2012

Nearly Home

Water colour 11"x8". The two trees in the foreground caught my eye. I have lived in the countryside for most of my life and yet I have always sensed something a little unsettling just below the surface.

Trees

Water colour 10"x7". I just liked the contrast between the stand of trees featured in my Nearly Home series and this single fir, sunlight flickering across its dark branches.

Nearly Home

Watercolour 10"x7". Watercolour allows you to create almost infinite space and from this view point I felt I could drift over the trees into the North devon landscape beyond.

Old Tinhay Bridge

Water colour 5"x5".

Gauging Station - River Thrushel

Water colour 10"x"6. There i was, wandering along the river bank, when I came across a gauging station. The concrete structure seemed so alien.

Gauging Station - River Thrushel

Watercolour 8"x6". The same gauging station. It was a rather bleak autumn day that gave the colours an uneasy washed out appearance.
2012

Silver Doctor

Water colour approx 10"x 8". Many of the pools on the Lyd are named after fishing flies which I find so evocative.

Nearly Home

Watercolour approx 10"x 8". A familiar sight near the Devon border when travelling on the A30. The title was my sister's reaction when she saw the picture and this painting has become the first of a series.

I can't remember a time when I didn't want to make, paint or draw and it is surely a bad day when neither happens for me. After spending a very happy time at Plymouth Art College following a Foundation course I then went to Manchester Polytechnic (as it was then known) to successfully complete a degree course in fine art. A lifetime followed which included a long period of teaching at a junior school. Now it is the landscape, the hills and rivers with their form and interplay of light that push me on to draw and paint.
