The Stacks near Castlemartin, Pembrokeshire
• Oil on canvas, 30 x 40" (76 x 102cm)
• Signed lower right
• Price on application

These stacks near Castlemartin really emphasise the solidity of the coastline’s rock formations against the fluidity of the sea. The churning water, powerful updrafts, and the cries of gulls between the rocks all add to the energy at this spot. I spent two days completing a 16 x 20" canvas on location before returning to the studio to create this enlargement. On the second day, the wind was strong enough to pull my easel's pegs and guy ropes from the ground and I nearly lost the canvas over the edge of the cliff.

A Bay near Castlemartin, Pembrokeshire
• Oil on canvas, 32 x 60" (82 x 152cm)
• Signed lower right
• Price on application

There is a real sense of timelessness about these inaccessible baysEven on a still and hazy day, wave after wave tirelessly rolls in, each etching its own infinitesimal share of destruction on the coastline.

The Green Bridge of Wales, Pembrokeshire
• Oil on canvas, 36 x 48" (91 x 122cm)
• Signed lower right
• Price on application


This natural limestone arch, known as the Green Bridge of Wales, is perhaps one of the most dramatic sites on the Pembrokeshire coast. In May, the guillemots arrive and nest on the nearby stumps and stacks, packing together as closely as they can. I spent two blustery days at this spot working on a 16 x 20" canvas before returning to the studio to create this enlargement.

Highgate Wood, London
• Oil on canvas, 40 x 60" (100 x 152cm)
• Signed lower right
• Price on application

The sun's shallow path in early autumn gives just enough time to observe the light head-on through a woodland canopy such as this one in Highgate. The air is damp at this time of year too, and the contre jour effect accentuates the blue haze between the trees. A lot of waiting for the right conditions was required to complete the study used to create this enlargement in the studio.

Natural Saltwater Pools at Cley, Norfolk
• Oil on canvas, 30 x 40" (76 x 102cm)
• Signed lower right
• Price on application


I became interested in the unusual forms of these natural saltwater pools on the marsh and, combined with their reflections of the brooding sky above, the subject matter was hard to resist. A lot of physical perseverance was needed to get this canvas out on location each day. On the last day of painting I found that, to slight alarm, the only way to return was by wading through knee-deep water with the wet canvas held above my head.

Towards Ben More from Iona
• Oil on canvas, 16 x 20" (41 x 51cm)
• Signed lower right
• Price on application




This was the first sketch I completed during a short stay on Iona. It was especially rewarding to get paint down on canvas as the rain on the first three days of the trip was so heavy I could hardly see through it. When the sun did come out, I raced to the island's north shore and didn't see another person on this pristine beach for the full six hours of painting.

Cathedral Rock, Iona
• Oil on canvas, 16 x 20" (41 x 51cm)
• Signed lower left
• Price on application




It was a while later after painting on this spot that I found out that the central rock depicted here has a name: 'Cathedral Rock'. I imagine I found it appealing for the same reasons that others, such as the Scottish Colourists, were drawn to it in the past. Its spire-like form is obvious, and it takes only the smallest of waves to generate the foamy seawater depicted here.

Hampstead Heath, Midsummer
• Oil on canvas, 24 x 26" (51 x 55cm)
• Signed lower right
• Price on application







It was a long time since it had rained, and the grasses of the Heath had become parched and straw-coloured. Against the blue of the July sky and distant mauve in the city, the resulting colour combinations were hard to resist. The warm, breezy day had brought out walkers and kite flyers.

The Woods at Smoker' s Hole, Norfolk
• Oil on canvas, 30 x 40" (76 x 102cm)
• Signed lower left
• Price on application




The light remained consistent enough to allow me to return to this spot on nine consecutive days one September. When starting out, it took time to find the right place for a composition to work, but when I came across this handsome beech I realised it would be key to allowing the eyes to rest in an otherwise complex arrangement.

Drying Sands on the North Shore, Iona
• Oil on canvas, 30 x 40" (76 x 102cm)
• Signed lower left
• Price on application




When the sun shines it is difficult to believe the colours in the water around the Hebrides. Crystal clear waters and fine white sands make for intense turqoises in the shallows and deep ultramarines further out. After returning from a trip to Iona, this work was created in the studio based on smaller works completed on location.
