Exhibition at Leabrooks Gallery has now ended although a few pieces remain there, along with signed copies of my book.
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 Leabrooks. Copies are also available from Search Press, bookshops, and on-line.
Virtual Patchings Festival - I believe this is still available to visit (free).
Leisure Painter - look out for another item from me before Christmas, and more in 2021.
Demonstrations, classes and workshops. Many of my contacts within the art community are classed as vulnerable, classes will only resume when authorities, the public and I feel this can be done safely.
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 - see the Book Illustrations tab.
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.
