Tuesday 20th August 2019Belmount Farm

 For over 35 years, I have watched Belmount Farm slowly deteriorate. Wherever I have been in the world, this farm and the surrounding landscape have stayed in my mind, and I have returned to painting it once more. There was a rainbow in the sky on this day, and a fine drizzle coming down all around it.
 
 
This is just one of six new originals that I am showing in the gallery from next week - a rare opportunity to see such a body of my new work. 'Belmount Farm' is also available as a print.

Tuesday 20th August 2019Turkish Window

‘Turkish Window’ was painted quite recently – though I worked from a photograph I took when I was visiting Dacca with Alison a while ago. A memory of a place can nag at me until I paint it, and this was such a case.
 
 
 
The landscape in Turkey was dotted with small farmhouses for seasonal workers and this abandoned cottage, with its glimpse of a view, compelled me to paint it. This is part of six new paintings that I am showing in the gallery from next week. 'Turkish Window' is also available as a print.

Tuesday 20th August 2019Colt Crag Reservoir

There's a unique chance to see a range of six new paintings in my Prudhoe gallery right now. I’ve never released so many watercolours at once, as each takes months, or even over a year to complete. Health problems I had earlier this year made it impossible for me to finish the paintings until last month.
 
 
 
‘Colt Crag Reservoir’ is one painting that I worked on for some 18 months. Colt Crag is north of Corbridge, near Colwell. This painting is available as a print also and you can see it in the gallery from next week.

Friday 09th November 2018Ruined Cottage, Allendale

Just after changing my cover photo to ‘Ruined Cottage,’ I received this photo from friend Jennifer, who has recently seen the cottage as it is now, after coming across it on a walk. The cottage in Allendale is surrounded by mine shafts, and seems to be sinking and crumbling into the earth.
 
 
Thanks to Jennifer for sending me the photo.

Friday 30th March 2018Two Years Since Official Gallery Opening

It‘s two years since the official opening of my Prudhoe gallery - so much has happened since then. Thanks to so many of you for your support - Alison, family, students, friends, neighbours and social media supporters.
 
 
Highlights have been showing at Ripon Cathedral and with the Royal Watercolour Society in London, visiting the Himalayas, Tuscany and France, and the paintings that followed - and several commissions. Appearing as a guest on Look North to give photography advice and judge the photos for their calendar was also an experience (or two) and great publicity for the gallery.
 
Thank you again.

Thursday 15th March 2018A Tuscan Cellar - Sequence of Painting

It's interesting to see the gradual development of this painting of a Tuscan cellar here, from start to (almost) finished. I've enjoyed working on it and have often been up at  four in the morning lately to finish it. This is a slightly unusual medium for me, because of the use of pencil, alongside the watercolour I often work in. This painting will soon be available as a print on my website.
