My passion for painting/drawing started when I was a small boy it was the only thing that I was able to do with any success. During my teens painting got put to one side for other activities!! I picked up the brush again after settling to a life in the Isles of Scilly where entertainment was very limited. I was inspired to paint again by the timeless landscape and jewel like colours in front of me. In the early 1990’s I opened a small gallery/studio on St Martins Isles of Scilly. This was very successful and carried on until I left the islands in 2006 for personal reasons. I have now settled in Worcester with my partner Lesley who works as a teaching assistant in a local school.
My week is split between painting, cooking and cleaning the latter often gets put to one side for more painting much to lesley’s displeasure!! We have converted our garage to a studio/storeroom which gives me plenty of space to paint and make tutorial videos. When ever the weather is good I like to venture out on my bicycle and paint the beautiful countryside surrounding Worcester. This is something I will be covering more in depth by video and blog posting.
I don’t portray myself to be a great watercolour painter just average but the pleasure that can be derived from expressing yourself through painting is immeasurable. For those with a modicum of talent, financial rewards are possible through the sale of artwork. To sum up, if your a keen painter or a beginner, bookmark this page and we can explore the world of painting together.
