Lesley Linley

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.


Events scheduled for 2020 have been cancelled/postponed; new dates will be available when government advises what measures need to be taken to ensure everyone's safety; fortunately my classes are always small!


As galleries are closed due to Coronavirus measures, it is likely to be some time before work is available for sale through them (although some may be able to post work out to you) but if you would like a piece of work that you have seen here, or one of the paintings that features in my book, please contact me; I can reserve it for you and you can complete the purchase when restrictions are lifted. I'll be adding a paypal facility in the near future.

My book 'Ready to Paint in 30 Minutes: Mountain Scenes in Watercolour' is now available. You can 'take a peek inside' on the Search Press website and can order directly from there.

I contributed to Leisure Painter magazines March and April 2020, look out for more later in the year.

Experienced Adult Education Tutor available for workshops, classes, demonstrations again when Coronavirus measures are lifted.

The extra demand on Broadband at the moment means that I'm losing my internet connection daily. My mobile number is 07919 465222.
