About this site

This website shows a selection of paintings, mainly in watercolour, though older paintings in acrylics and oil are included too. I first started painting in the 1970s when a student. Some of my larger 'exhibition' paintings such as The Old Brewery, Cockermouth date from back then. After that time most painting has been done on holidays - many paintings are of rural France or the English seaside; usually sketches at least started, if not always finished, on location.
