Still Life

A still life at Beaujeu

Meadow flowers with ivy and olive sprigs, a bowl with a river smoothed pebble and a piece of irradiated quartz. Watercolur and bodycolour on paper


River washed trees and surrounding hills.  Watercolour on paper.  It was so hot that I had to load the brush heavily with paint. The paint dried on the paper quickly leaving sharp edges.

A Still Life From Your Life

If I’m staying with someone I like to paint a still life from things in their house…

Still Life, Kat's things

Jean and Bob’s House

Still Life for Jean and Bob 2013


This is from 1997 when I was still at school; I was always discouraged from this graphic style by teachers so I don’t have much around.

Lakenheath Fen and Marsh Harrier

On a windy April day with sunny spells we watched Marsh Harriers through our binoculars.

Marsh Harrier painted at school after work experience at Wicken Fen.

I admit I’m getting too much mileage out of old stuff recently (this is from 1995) but I am posting this to set the bar; I really want to get back into regular practice with water colours.
