Distressed typeforms with 'a' ghost
I don't usually bother with abstract or semi-abstract paintings but sometimes an idea niggles for ages until I get round to expressing it. This is one such. By using matte…
Hemsby Road, Winterton
Based on a photo taken in February 1979 when the road was entirely blocked. I left out the car half hidden in a drift!

Painted five snow pictures in a row and felt like a change of approach with this one!
Not a day for bathing

Ackworth School from Station Road
I have revised this picture by removing leaves and branches, adding shadows and generally sprucing it up.
An HGV too far
Based on the view from one side of Cromer church tower.
Eight Elms Farm, Wimpole
Seen from the A505 many times and then, later, sketched and painted. Liberties taken with the aspects of the buildings.
On Port Hill, Hertford
Out sketching one evening couldn't pass this Hopperish scene by. Oil sketch turned into this picture. Liberties taken with proportions as the real building is quite squat.
The roofs of Paris
Saw these roofs whilst climbing the hill at Montmartre. Heavy rain so all I could do was photograph and get on with the painting back in the UK.
Snow in the HIlls
This wasn't meant to be a snow scene but it gradually moved through the seasons as I worked.
Two shops in Amwell End, Ware
I was taken by the attractive simplicity of the old buildings. The bustle of the shops just adds to that.
The High-light, North Shields; Version 5
Ink and watercolour
Red noticeboard, San Guilio, Lake Orta, Italy
On the Ayot Way, Hertfordshire
Low sun at Datchworth
The last geranium
Oil on canvas board
So Roche, it's 'Farewell'
For decades Roche was part of Welwyn Garden City. Now they have gone, their elegant chimney demolished, the beautiful buildings flattened.
2013 and older
Some of these are still for sale and I'm happy to listen to any offers.
