By the lake, Udaipur 12 x 16” Oil on board
On show at Wykeham, this painting comes from sketches and work done on a trip to Rajasthan a few years back.
‘Rooftops of Nice’ W/col 26 x 39 cm
This painting was produced from a sketch made in Nice last year. The view is from the cemetery and the sketch could only be created by standing up and peering over a high wall. Not easy but the result was worth the effort. I love the way that the various towers of the city stand out from an almost abstract jumble of rooftops. This painting was shown at the RI exhibition this year at the Mall Galleries in London and is now at the Wykeham show.
‘The Pond Wood, Stearsby’ 20 x 16” Oil on canvas
North Yorkshire and cold weather earlier this year. This is also on show at the Wykeham Gallery.
