I think the shore line of England is incredible and I want to paint many more views like this. From Lindisfarne to Hastings and Scotland to Cornwall the subjects are endless and always a pleasure. I hope you like this minute but growing collection.

“Approaching storm, Bamburgh.”
What a stunning location for a storm to brew up in and this watercolour captures
the drama as the sky turns angry and steams into the Northumberland coast. Image

Yorkshire coast near Scarborough.
The forces of nature stir up the elements and we can stand and stare and do little
else, except possibly paint.
Do it in the studio though, in a wind like this your board will be gone before you
can reach for your pencil.

The tiny fishing harbour of Dunure in Ayrshire held this collection of fisherman's
stuff which turned me on in no time at all. I just had to paint it. Am I a masochist

“ Grand Harbour... With ship”
(For want of a better title)
This really is Grand Harbour, Valletta, Malta in fact. A massive fortress built
by the Knights of St John, who with great foresight constructed the enormous defences
to withstand the might of the Ottoman Turks who plundered the Mediterranean Seas.
The siege of Malta in 1565 was to become the greatest in History. It was a lot quieter
when we were there.This is a great Watercolour as well Size 66 x 39 cm -Image. Framed

This is another of the Filey Trio I have recently painted and forms a pair with the
one below. The same evening light and the simple subject caught in the halo of sunlight.

“ Beachcombers II ”
Oil on Canvas size 51 x 41 cm
Two figures, Boy and Girl, looking for shells in the sea washed sands of Filey beach.
A painting capturing all the warmth and light of a prefect summers evening on the
beach. Framed as a pair.
The Yorkshire coast has some wonderful harbours, and the small fishing village at
Staithes is truly great.
Only Cornwall can really give it some serious competition. This watercolour is on

We’ve spent a lot of time at Filey, thanks to the Mark Lewis Gallery that sadly now
has closed. However the times we had there have provided me with some great images
to paint. This is a new one and shows the Cobble Landing in high summer. Hope you

“Seaside Sunset...” Blackpool sands Watercolour size 11” x 14” approx.
“The Salt Wind...”
The same location, almost.
The storm winds have past and the salt blows on the air, wild rough flowers face
the sun and brave the elements. The high cliffs stand firm and their beauty draws
walkers and painters from far and wide. Me included.
Watercolour same as above.
“ Passing Storm... Whitby.”
It seemed like a bad move at the time, just arriving when a stormy downpour was washing
the rooftops. Minutes later the clouds cracked open and the sun burst through.
One of the best views around...
