Corfe Castle at sunrise

TITLE:  Corfe Castle at sunrise

IMAGE SIZE:  220mm x 220mm

MOUNT SIZE:  400mm x 400mm off white

PRICE: £195.00

ARTIST'S OBSERVATIONS:  Watercolour with ink.  I have a fascination with this site and have painted it at various times and from different angles.  I loved the idea (and challenge) of painting the sunlight just arriving over the hill.  Since I painted this picture I have searched and enquired into who took this lovely image.  A short while ago I found him and he very kindly gave me permission to sell the painting, donating a percentage of the takings to the National Trust.  The photographer's name is Matthew Gibson and I am indebted to him for producing such an evocative and inspiring image.

Stourhead

TITLE:  Stourhead

IMAGE SIZE:  370 x 270 mm

MOUNT SIZE: 500 x 400 mm in pale cream

PRICE:  £95 Plus P&P

ARTIST'S OBSERVATIONS:  Watercolour and ink.  I am pleased with the contrast in tones I have managed.  The reason for this was that I painted it from a black and white photograph, so wasn't distracted by the colours.

Early morning in the Forest

TITLE: Early morning in the Forest

IMAGE SIZE: 230 x 300 mm

MOUNT SIZE:  330 x 400 mm in pale cream

PRICE: SOLD during Dorset Art Weeks

ARTIST'S OBSERVATIONS: Mixed media. Although this picture is predominantly watercolour and ink, I have been experimenting with textures and have added watercolour ground to my armoury. I am pleased with the results on the trees which now look more textural. I have also added a tiny piece of text to the picture to try to describe the atmosphere, and a little gold paint.

CARDS: Handmade cards available.

Dorset stream

TITLE:  Dorset Stream

IMAGE SIZE:  235 x 235mm

MOUNT SIZE:  400 x 400mm in pale cream

PRICE:  SOLD

ARTIST'S OBSERVATIONS:  Watercolour and pen.  Painted in mid-summer when the countryside is a riot of exploding green vegetation and the light filters through the trees.  Painted as an exercise in different tones of greens of greens, trying to use negative painting to show some of the stalks and leaves.

Stourhead in Autumn

TITLE:  Stourhead in Autumn

IMAGE SIZE:  350 x 250 mm

MOUNT SIZE:  500 x 400 mm in pale cream

PRICE:  £80.00  Plus P&P

ARTIST'S OBSERVATIONS:  Watercolour and pen.  Unfortunately my first attempt to photograph this picture was a little too detailed for the program to accept, so the definition and colour of this picture has been compromised a little which I shall try to rectify.  I love the Autumn colours and have tried to replicate them in this picture.

CARDS:  Handmade cards available.

Hampshire Stream

TITLE:  Hampshire Stream - featured in the Online Gallery section of Leisure Painter magazine April 2016

IMAGE SIZE:  200 x 300 mm

MOUNT SIZE:  300 x 400 mm in pale cream

PRICE:  SOLD

ARTIST'S OBSERVATIONS:  Watercolour and pen.  This was painted from a photograph and what I particularly liked about the image was the almost infinite shades and colours of green - always a challenge!  I enjoyed painting it, although it sat, unfinished, for quite a long time until I decided whether it was finished or not.  The finishing touch was using my pen to bring out the different tones and shapes.

Avoidance of another green landscape

TITLE:  Avoidance of another green landscape

IMAGE SIZE:  250mm x 300mm

MOUNT SIZE:  300mm x 400mm

PRICE:  SOLD

ARTIST'S OBSERVATIONS:  This landscape was painted after a rather arduous three-day painting session where almost every colour I could see, and therefore used, was a different shade of green.  While I like greens very much, painting this landscape in green would have been a step too far!  It shows that I am still looking for patterns, which is becoming quite important to me and I like the slightly unusual acid yellow, blue, turquoise and purple.  A little different to my normal choice of colours.

Beech avenue, Badbury Rings

TITLE:  Beech avenue, Badbury Rings

SIZE OF IMAGE:  300 x 300mm

SIZE AND COLOUR OF MOUNT:  400 x 400mm in white

PRICE:  SOLD

ARTIST'S OBSERVATIONS:  This was painted in response to the number of times a week I travel between Wimborne and Blandford Forum in all weathers and times of the year.  It never ceases to intrigue me as I pass under these enormous and beautiful trees, and eventually last winter I painted a few of them.  I was pleased with the finished results as they look strong and enduring.  Perhaps I shall paint them again this Spring.

CARDS:  Handmade cards are available to purchase.

Witchampton stream

TITLE:  Witchampton Stream

SIZE OF IMAGE:  280 mm x 200 mm

SIZE AND COLOUR OF MOUNT: 400 mm x 300 mm

PRICE:  £95.00 Plus P&P

ARTIST'S OBSERVATIONS:  This was painted on location which is rare for me.  Although I love being outside, there is almost too much to capture, and I struggle to concentrate.  It was completed in the studio, where I had to study it for quite a while to see whether the balance of tone was correct.  I was quite pleased with the finished piece, and enjoyed finishing it off with penwork.
