Self portrait (2019)
This is me painted in the way that I like to paint portraits by using only blue, red and yellow the three primary colours along with a lot of titanium white. I allow the colours to mix so that I can achieve the greens and oranges. Using titanium white allows me to achieve the different shades of colours that I might need.
Steam Train in the Sidings
An old Great Western Railway Train in the sidings at the end of a smokey London day. An impressionist-style watercolour painted in 3 colours: raw sienna, cadmium red and french ultramarine. Signed and dated by the artist. This painting comes already framed in a 70mm high quality mount (charcoal inner 5mm and cream outer 65mm). The frame is dark oak with an inner gold trim. The total size framed is 540 x 440mm.
Grand Canal Venice
Wisteria bridge at Monet's pond. Before sunset (2019)
The Wisteria Bridge at Monet's gardens is a constant source of inspiration for me. The gardens don't look quite like they did in Monet's day (the plants are different around the pond and they are a bit over mature for my liking) and so people ask me why do I go every year. I reply by saying "even though it's not the same this is where it all happened and I see or feel something different each time I'm here. The spirit of Monet and Impressionism is still here".
A Wet Monday
This is No.19 of my `Northern Art` collection, they are all the same size, just a tactile 14" x 10" x half inch thick. Painted on my own HANDMADE canvas boards. side also painted so ready to hang. The general theme is of the sooty streets of bygone era northern mill towns. 17 have now been sold so just this and No. 18 left. It`s a wet soggy Monday here...But the grocer man still has to keep his customers supplied....No big supermarkets in these days.
The Mists on Snaefell Mountain
Sarra on the summit of Snaefell Mountain. Locally the mists are known as the Cloak of Mannan which can envelope the whole of the mountain, sometimes even spilling out onto the island itself. It is said that when the mists clear, one can see 6 Kingdoms - Isle of Mann, England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland and the Kingdom of Heaven.
Burley in Wharfedale Main Street (2019)
The large building on the right/middle of the painting is called "Elm House". Until recently it had a large elm tree in the front garden and would have blocked the view of the building and the painting would have looked completely different if I had painted it about four years earlier! There is a little bit of Lowry influence in this painting and that is the red coat worn by the pedestrian. Lowry used to paint things like a coat in red to make them stand out more.

The Magpie (after Monet) (2019)
This is my favourite painting in my Monet Versions collection. I particularly like the light on the snow and the blue colours. Should you commission me I will paint another one of this painting for you. Obviously it is not exactly the same as Monet's original and I am glad of that as I wish the painting to contain more of me. The only thing the same is the subject matter.
