Malvern hills firecracker sunset

Be bold with colour!

That was fun. Very loosely based on an autumn sunset I saw when walking on the Malvern hills, coming down Summer Hill looking towards British Camp.

Crystal waters

Here’s one I’m working on. I wanted to capture the translucent clear water, but stick to my usual style of painting with palette knives and thick paint…

Luskentyre, Harris

About this time of year in 2011, I went to Harris for my birthday. The whole of UK was under a deluge of torrential rain all weekend, but there was a pocket of sunshine over the Hebrides, and we had these beautiful beaches to ourselves.

Rannoch Moor

I painted this abstracted scene of Rannoch Moor inspired by a beautiful serene photograph (below) taken by Derek Prescott… Mine is not serene. I just wasn’t in that sort of mood! Photograph courtesy of Derek Prescott.
