A scene from Scotland

With the submission date for the Annual Exhibition of the Portsmouth and Hampshire Art Society fast approaching, I have been considering which paintings to put forward, this is a watercolour painting recollecting the granduer of the West coast of Scotland, from one of my visits some years ago. An artist cannot fail to be inspired by the majestic scenery and rugged beauty of the place, and I feel I shall have to try and make another visit before too long.


If you wish to have a painting of a particular scene that is special for you, please feel free to contact me through my website for a no obligation discussion, or just visit my gallery for a browse.

Last weeks trip

My son had some holiday last week so we took the opportunity to visit the Watercress Line preserved railway, that runs between Alresford and Alton in Hampshire. The weather was good and took the opportunity to get some photographs, this painting is based on one I took as the train arrived at Medstead and Four Marks, the highest point on the line before beginning the long descent into Alton.


We are off to visit the Great Western Railway Centre at Didcot tomorrow, celebration of Fathers Day, well that's the excuse anyway.
