The origin of this painting stems from a very wet and raw Easter in Anglesey. We spent a blustery afternoon walking the coastal path up through Moefre towards Traeth Lligwy, watching the waves foam and crash around the rocks beneath. Pale jade water brewing under a slate grey sky…

Some new work just arrived at the Flint Gallery in Blakeney. This piece is modeled with Bonnie, who was a little sad to see it go (I think she liked the way it matched her blanket!).

Really pleased about some new work that’s just arrived at the Blue Tree Gallery in York. The work is based on the fields and coastline of North Yorkshire, especially around my old stomping ground of Robin Hoods Bay.

September, when the days grow shorter…and that rich low light catches the land a little earlier each day.

Sea fog, fret, haar, even murk (depending where you live) eventually lifts away becoming a haze as the sun starts to filter through. The air fills with light and horizons start to deepen, gradually revealing the coastline.

Some new paintings arriving at the Flint Gallery in Blakeney today.
This piece, very much inspired by the fast moving skies that bluster across the reed beds and marshes between Blakeney and Cley.

The coastline of North Norfolk is one of my favourite places to return to year after year. I think it’s about the calmness that descends upon you once you’re walking out across the marshes towards the sea. The sheer expanse of sky feels like a real luxury – cinematic and constantly changing. This piece, based on the coastline near Holkam, is very much about the shifting light in those moments between the rain and the sun.
