Drawn, Painted and Printed in Yorkshire.
Whilst many of my paintings have been sold at local exhibitions such as Buckden and Gargrave, this website, I hope, will bring them to a wider audience. Prints from my original paintings, done in pen and watercolour, are produced by Matthew at John Mason, Printers.
My work starts with photographs taken on walks. I follow footpaths and rocks that I know. Mentally I have to be ‘lost’ in the landscape.
After doing a sketch in pencil, some of the buildings and walls are drawn in pen. I then decide on the season, the sky, where the sun would be coming from, and if the scene needs to be simplified in some way. For example, are there too many trees or buildings; do I need people? Always I have two birds - curlews - flying above the Dale. They have become my trademark.
Print only, unframed (no mount).
