About the Book
I have been painting in the landscape of Cornwall for the last six years. This book contains 50 of my favorite paintings from this time, most of which were painted 'en plein air'. I hope you enjoy looking at the paintings as much as I enjoyed painting them.
I've been painting full time since my retirement in 2005. I am a prolific painter who paints outside in all weathers, attempting to complete the work in a single session. (Using a blow torch to speed up the drying process of my watercolours in damp weather, and have set fire to my gloves on many occasions!) I paint almost exclusively on location, mainly in the West Country and from my studios in North Cornwall and Surrey.
