A quick oil sketch looking across the river Blythe in Southwold - soft greys and cool colours from a photo taken on a cold winter's day. What little light there was bouncing over the fast moving water.

Two paintings today of the River Sib and the valley through which it runs. The second was made at the bottom of the hill after I had jumped over the railings on the right!
I am unable to show my websites at this time and am working on a solution.

Two of my favourite subjects to paint - sheds and old boats! Absolutely love Southwold harbour and could spend hours just wandering around. I want to convert one of the sheds into a studio, there's a cafe further along; mugs of tea and bacon sarnies! what else does one need!
I'm not really sponsored by the Suffolk tourist board, but maybe I should be!
I'm busy getting ready for the forthcoming exhibition at Swalcliffe Village Hall starting this Saturday 14th and running until the 22nd open 9 - 5 maybe see you there?
A painting you'll find makes a unique gift and lasts forever!
