Spring Day by a Mountain River. Alagna Italy 130x180cm oil on canvas.

Painted in early June on the bank of a fast moving river near Alagna in northern Italy .  I was given the opportunity to visit and stay in this region for a month.  The mountains and rivers were particularly inspiring as were the Italian lakes, villages, food, wine and the locals.


Spring Day by a Mountain River will be exhibited at the McAllister Thomas Gallery in October as part of my solo show starting on the Saturday 14th.

Autumn River and Mountains Glencoe 100×130 oil on Canvas

Swiftly and softly the rain starts to fall. I have set up my easel on the banks of a stream that meanders through the highest point on Rannoch Moor in Scotland. There are a few hints of blue in an otherwise cloudy, autumnal sky. Mists on the horizon fade and blur the distant mountains of Glencoe. The forecast had mentioned that there ‘might be a slight chance of rain’. I don my waterproofs and set to work. It’s a perfect day!

Rye is a small town in East Sussex, which stands approximately two miles from the open sea.  This was  painted on the banks of the River Rother, the tide going out and the light slowly fading.
