Beyond the Studio
My tiny studio has three doors, one to the house, one to the garden and this to the rest of the extension. I had about three hours to fill recently…
Walking near Cley and Blakeney on the Norfolk Coast I saw this scene across a newly dug river bed and had to make a long distance photo because I knew…
The Work Boat
I saw this piece of land from the Jacobite Train last year. No reflection in the loch so I had to invent that. The work boat was on a different…

Behind St Andrews Street, Hertford.
I see this scene every time I leave the St Andrews Street car park but my attention was caught this day by one bloom just peeking over the wall. I…

Window at Walberswick 1
This was a fascinating window, part of a fisherman;s shed, at Walberswick. It was difficult to see through the glass so a lot of this is part-imaginary.
Blown snow at the car park.
A night of fine snow with a strong wind left these trees at Stanborough Park with a fine snow coat on just one side. An hour later all had gone.
On the Great Ouse at St Ives.
On the ancient bridge at St Ives, Huntingdonshire, I was struck by this odd, white, heavily trimmed tree. As it was a long way upstream I took a telephoto so…
The Red Wagon
See my earlier version of this picture in watercolour. This oil won an award at the recent TAPC/Patchings Art Exhibition which was very pleasing.
