Description

2017    Another year of experimenting with watercolour, ink and pastel/ lino and woodcuts/painting on textiles.

My subject matter is very varied, as usual. At the moment I'm enjoying the challenge of trying to capture, the character and movement of the sparrows and pigeons in our garden....not easy!

At Open Studios I will also have a display of seabird sketches. I am spending a week on the John Busby Seabird Drawing course in June. We will be sketching outdoors in all weathers so the results should be interesting.

I hope you will come and see me at work. I will be in Gurnard Village hall along with 5 brilliant artists: Tony Westmore, Chris Gillies, Carly Groves Susie Prangnell and Steve Prangnell

Other painting has been inspired by a holiday in Australia ...big landscapes and birdlife. 

 

 

 

 

 


About

I draw and paint using waterbased materials, charcoal and pastel. I like to experiment...and to work on a large scale. My subject matter is very varied. This always keeps me interested and excited whenever I start a new piece of work. I enjoy watching water-based paints and inks react with water...so I use lots of it ...I can sit back and let the materials do the work for me. I often draw into the paint with pencils while it is wet.

I like to paint birds, landscapes and flowers. this year, much of my work will be sketching an painting garden birds and seabirds.
