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.

It was great to be back with my pochade box and gear painting along the Derwentwater shore line. I should have been painting the complexities of the garden but I had left the rabbits in peace and had decided that early morning quiet time for me, was best spent on the shores of Derwentwater . It’s a natural place for contemplation a soft breeze rippling the surface of the lake moving the reflections of the Lingholm Islands muted mauves indistinct in front of the distant Walla Crag all waiting for the first gentle rays of the sun. I could almost see Beatrice Potter sitting further along the shoreline watercolours in hand as she painted Herbert’s Island. Here are two of my oil paintings; pochade’s in oils 30x24 cm

I will miss the beginning and the end of Summer 2016 (not the middle as it always seems to rain in August )Although its always sad to see the geese leave us flying over the house on their way from Rivington to the North I enjoy the fresh feeling that a September morning brings. This is one of my favourite Lakeland September views across Derwentwater and up to the mountain like Causey Pike with the morning mists rising.
