I hope that the gallery update will be complete before the end of June. Please contact me for payment methods.
Exhibition. My exhibition at Leabrooks Gallery will resume on 6th July, all being well. Please check before travelling a long distance. Framed works and unframed works (including a few pieces that appeared in my book) are available. Signed copies of the book will be on sale.
Book. Ready to Paint in 30 Minutes: Mountain Scenes in Watercolour (Search Press). Signed copies are available from me (£12.99 plus P&P - £3 UK) and from the exhibition. Copies are also available from Search Press, bookshops, and on-line.
Virtual Patchings Festival - 9th July.
Leisure Painter - look out for another item from me before Christmas, and more in 2021.
Demonstrations, classes and workshops. As many of my contacts within the art community are classed as vulnerable, classes etc will only resume when the authorities and the public feel it is safe to do so.
Paintings: The original paintings featured in my book - mostly the Isle of Skye and the Lochalsh area of the Highlands - are now available for purchase - some are shown under the Book Illustrations tab, a few will be at my exhibition, the rest will be added to my website.
An accident last summer prevented me from getting out for new material, Covid19 restrictions have prevented me doing so this year. I intend to seek out waterfalls in Derbyshire and the wider landscape, as soon as possible.
A few originals, prints and cards can be seen at Cromford Gallery, Derbyshire. If you're interested in anything you see on this site, please get in touch.
