Winchesters offers some exciting landscapes opportunities that can only be fully experienced and captured by setting up and painting on the spot. I completed my preliminary series of plein air paintings that went on display for the very first time at the exhibition. Plein air is French for painting outdoors, or is the act of painting outdoors. Personally this represents a massive step as a landscape painter.

The gallery was full and mingling and chatting to everyone face to face was great fun. The turnout was fantastic and in turn the atmosphere on Saturday night was electric. I hope that everyone enjoyed the evening as much as I did.

Fareham college ran an article on my first exhibition;

I usually paint the tranquillity in a landscape. Capturing the power of the wind and sea crashing against the majestic rocks that surround Tintagel castle produced new challenges for me to tackle. I've really enjoyed working on this seascape and look forward to sharing the finished painting with you soon.

I've had great fun experimenting and approaching a painting with more speed. Painting this sprawling landscape on a tiny 8" x 10" was a really enjoyable challenge.

In December 2017, I had sometime to myself. I decided as 2018 was fast approaching, this was a great opportunity to do some reflecting.

I've been having a very productive spell in the studio recently. This has meant I've kept Hiscock Gallery busy with scanning, proofing and framing. I've been very pleased with the scanning and framing they've provided me this week!

Painting of a Dutch Girl  was painting a few weeks ago. I was lucky to have a very patient sitter, and painted this portrait in first person. This painting is currently being framed at Hiscock Gallery in Southsea, I'll upload the framed image before Christmas.

I am currently working on a seascape from Marazion beach in Cornwall. I used to live very close and spend lots of happy family time here.

This year I have taken time out to revisit my love of Cornwall's striking landscapes. This painting was sketched up during a surfing trip with my close friends. I finished the final painting a few weeks ago.

'Painting of a Dutch girl' is a 10" x 8" oil on canvas study I painted last week. I enjoyed all the new challenges that came wit having my subject right there in the studio. I will get this painting framed as soon as its dry and will share the finished piece with you here.
