I've just added two new paintings to the website. Actually the one of Bowlees, a beautiful waterfall and glade near High Force in Teesdale, County Durham, is nearly two years old. I was not pleased with the painting at first but see it now with renewed eye and feel much more positive about it. The sunset painting was completed this morning and I've really enjoyed letting go with the reds and golds for this one!
Autumn has well and truly arrived now, and a strange hectic storm agitates the oaks outside my window as I write this. I've just added two new paintings - one from a scene I saw this summer on Portland Bill in Dorset. I have reimagined the light pretty liberally. The other, finished this morning, is of twinned trees I saw near Cowden in Kent. I love the slightly surreal effect they create, echoing each other in a paradox of lightness and darkness.
