This portrait was based on sketches and photos taken in a cornfield in Suffolk. The early evening light played beautifully across Kevin’s pale Celtic skin and jet black hair…

The view from the house I lived in at the time, situated on the corner of King Street and Henry Street. Tring is a thriving market town set in the green fields of Hertfordshire. Wonderful and challenging perspective in this scene. Plus great patterns on the brick walls and tiled roofs. I worked on this [...]

Hot from my travels in Spain (summer 1985) and all things flamenco I started to make drawings and paintings of fans.

With these items [...]

A hot, sunny afternoon in this Andalusian village which has inspired a number of artists, photographers and writers. I didn’t want to disturb these two youngsters as they opened their new game so I used my zoom lens. I like the simplicity of the white building and the range of tones in this timeless scene… [...]

However the study of tones and textures on the dark fan helped a great deal once I was working on the painting. [...]

This is a quick, experimental student painting heavily influenced by my visit to Spain in the summer of 1985. I’ve used the square format that I favoured for the charcoal drawing, Black and White Fans. I was playing with the shapes of various objects on my dressing table and the spaces around them. I used [...]

When one of my A-Level Art students announced she was going to do a project about tattoos I realised that I knew the perfect model for some drawing from observation! Ray was “a friend of a friend”, tall, dark-haired, star sign Sagittarius (naturally) and lead singer of a local rock band in Aylesbury. He was [...]

I could devote a whole website to teaching but I will try to keep things simple. My mission was to encourage young people to be confident in their abilities and to work well with others. Drawing from observation and using their imagination were two consistent threads in my Art Curriculum. I had the good fortune [...]
