This year I have been spending some time down in Brixham, Devon where the boats and the light provide me with such wonderful reflections that I am really in my element! Where I work however, is not conducive to working in oils so I have been experimenting with acrylic which, because of it’s faster drying qualities, has pushed my style into new directions - less reliance on detail and more experimental textures and colours. Below are some of the boats and reflections from Devon harbours.

I recently had the opportunity to do some painting ‘in situ’ in the Britannia Royal Naval College in Dartmouth. It was a great day and working in acrylic I produced these two paintings.
Both were done in the area known as the Chapel Flat, the first one looking through to a side chapel with its everlasting flame. The second looking down the 1/8th mile corridor which stretches the length of the college.
Some of the studies have been worked up in oil back in my Norfolk studio as with this red and white boat
So called because it has a calm and simple attitude.
