I’m a passionate watercolour painter of landscapes, cityscapes, and interiors.
I love the immediacy of watercolour and its infinite magical subtleties. In my mind, there is no better medium for capturing the fleeting play of light across a scene.
An energetic, bold directness characterises my approach to painting. I don’t seek to create an exact representation but try to capture and evoke a distinctive sense of mood, drama, and atmosphere.
My paintings are for sale, and I can ship nationally and internationally.
My weekly blog, ‘Brushes with Watercolour’, is my way of sharing my adventures with this brilliant (and sometimes infuriating) medium with other enthusiasts. I hope that my paintings, and my blog, give visitors a glimpse into why painting in watercolour is one of the most beautiful and satisfying pursuits. Brushes with Watercolour is also my diary in which I record all my paintings – the good and the bad – as well as any associated activities.
I hope you’ll stay awhile and have a look around. If you see anything you like, please let me know; it’d be great to hear from you. You can leave public comments on any blog posts or get in touch privately through my contact page.
In the meantime, here are some pictures of me at work. Or is it play?
Even though the results don’t always work out as expected, it’s always a joy being out in such beautiful locations!
