Tuesday 12th November 2019Countryfile, Sunday 1st December

I spent an excellent 2 days with Countryfile‘s Matt and Dan last week as they filmed me painting near Stagshaw, Corbridge for the show. It will be screened at 6 pm on 1st Dec and the theme of the programme is Teesdale and Northumberland. 
 
Producer Matt Smith wanted to see me exploring Northumberland to find windows, houses and landscapes to paint and we went up past Stagshaw, Corbridge, to film at Wall Fell Farm. Next, we walked across to Great Whittington Fell and filmed a window there.
 
 
This was at Wall Fell Farm. Filming finished up in my Prudhoe gallery.

Tuesday 20th August 2019Quarry Man's Cottage, Carrara

It was late October when Alison and I spotted this cottage in Tuscany, in the quarry from which Michelangelo bought his marble. It was a bright day, extraordinary in October, according to the locals, and the light was outstanding. This little house has survived several devastating earthquakes.
 
 
 
This is one of six new originals showing from next week in my gallery, and is also available as a print.

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.

Tuesday 20th August 2019Limestone Brae

This atmospheric building also featured in my painting 'Old Barn', which I painted some 10 years ago. The room with that window in it in this building was still intact when I saw it last. This image is one that has stayed with me and in fact I was interested in buying this house at one point.
 
 
 
This painting is available as an original watercolour and a limited edition print and you can see it in my gallery from next week.

Saturday 27th July 2019My First Prudhoe Art Trail

 I very much enjoyed the first Prudhoe Art Trail, and the businesses all along Front Street really got behind it. Dozens of people visited the gallery every day and walked along the trail, enjoying paintings, wood turnings, glass and sculpture displayed in many of the shops and cafes.
 
 
Prudhoe Painters
 
Thank you Claudia Quayle, artist, for the photos of Prudhoe painters in my gallery. Claudia is on the right of the photograph below of the launch event.  The other photos feature artists in other Prudhoe shops and cafes.
 
We hope that this will become an annual event in the town.

This article in the Journal tells you more and features Claudia Quayle's painting. The gallery is acting as hub to the event and we hope it will be one of many!
