Derbyshire watercolour artist, tutor, author.
My paintings, predominantly landscape and waterfalls, feature the Isle of Skye (my home for some years) and the adjacent Lochalsh area, and Derbyshire, where I was born and have spent most of my life.
I paint in transparent watercolour, without using masking fluid, body colour or white paint; this approach means that paintings can take many hours to complete.
Some paintings/cards are still available from Skye Makers (Dunvegan, Isle of Skye), and SkyeWorks Gallery in Portree. Leabrooks Arts Complex in Derbyshire has a few pieces, as does Cromford Studio and Gallery. I have an exhibition at Leabrooks Gallery in March.
My book 'Ready to Paint in 30 Minutes: Mountain Scenes in Watercolour' will be published in April 2020; it is available for pre-order now from Search Press website where you can see a preview of the book.
I've written for Leisure Painter magazines March and April 2020 issues.
Experienced Adult Education Tutor available for workshops, classes, demonstrations.

Slow Broadband speed means my gallery isn't updated as often as it should be. You may find examples of very recent pieces on twitter @LesleyLinleyArt or facebook @PaintSkye.
