Winter Blues

New York Shadows

I took these photos on the street of New York recently, sort of by accident, had camera in my hand being the tourist and snapped three of them unbeknownst to myself. Have to say I really like them!


I was recently looking at some older pieces from 2014 and kept getting drawn back to these two.... CLick on them for a larger image

I'm often asked how I paint. An answer to which is a very expansive!!So in keeping it brief I thought I'd show you an image of various stages of a painting. These are not all the stages, but they should give you an idea of the process in which I add layers of paint. Just click on the image for a bigger version.




Aran Light

I had the pleasure of visiting Inis Oirr , the smallest of the Aran Islands in mid November. The weather was beautiful, a really amazing winter light. These are some photos I took whilst there.

Wet Paint!

NOT the Royal Academy!

So after being refused from this years annual show at the Royal Academy in London, I thought I'd try my luck in the NOT the Royal Academy Show in the Llewellyn Alexander Gallery in Waterloo and they accepted my piece! Runs until 17th August!
