Welcome to my blog
Its now, at the time of writing just 18 months since I started work at Lingholm painting in Derwentwater. . The that the dust from the rennovations has settled and the gardeners begun their task of nuturing the estates environment towards beauty I have begun to revist the grounds and gardens.
This blog is a way of showing you what I am up to, and share some artist notes and expressions along with new images.

As resident artist at Lingholm I was lucky enough to take a walk every morning through the woodlands in the Lingholm Estate and walk down and along the open lake shore..its a thing that Beatrice Potter used to do whilst carrying her watercolours...on this day with the wind at storm force would beatrice have been there mmm I bet she would...why? because it was such an adventure a treat to see and paint Blencathra and her stoic bulk and ridges across a wind lashed lake..defined through tattered eyes and damned winds..here's my attempts to paint scratch push pull spit at the weathered scoured blasted wind burnt and cursed slapped paint on board...
I've been looking at these for a while and do you know what..I'm going up to Lingholm to make some more...painting on Derwentwater's shores is living..and I'm missing it

This is a sneak preview of the first of a series of colourful watercolours of the Lingholm Estates Kitchen walled garden. I began this during a visit at Springtime when the lush greens were just developing and the spring colours were in full show. The shadows of the trees were cooler at this time of the year as was the interior of the garden.Still no sign of Peter rabbit but I am told by a reliable source that the rabbits are plenty full and increasing outside the garden.
Im back again next week so if any one wants to join me as I paint please let me know through the contacts page on the site or on facebook.

I spent a great afternoon on the 22nd June with Pip and Rebecca from Wallace Seymour Paints talking to Keswick Art Society and showing the stages of development of the triptychs in the Stone Room. Its over 18 months since I completed the final work and they were mounted onto the walls. So it was nice to revisit all the work alongside other artists. It certainly brought back memories and stirred up my thoughts into action on developing some more pieces for display in the Lingholm Kitchen Gallery.
So watch this space
I am writing, almost a week on since your presentation to Keswick Art Society to say how much we al enjoyed it so a big thank you! We had a workshop today, run by Ceri Allen ‘en plein air’ but we retreated inside for refreshments and got chatting about last week. We were so impressed, not only by the triptych paintings but also the amazing amount of preparation you put in. It was quite an experience too, being able to spend the afternoon in the Stone Room. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience, rounded off nicely by the cream tea!
