Earth Song
I've been painting out in the fields around Huttons Ambo in this boiling hot weather. Quite excited about this new work which has reached places I have never been before.
Homage to Bruce Chatwin 'Englands Green Bowl
This is the first time I have painted on Gesso and I think there is no turning back. Also the first time I have painted on plywood. The boiling hot weather has added to the dramatic contrasts between light and dark. 
Buttercups
So nice to stand in a field with hay between your bare toes, the sun beating on your straw hat, your eyes squinting to catch the shadows and the light. This new work will be exhibited at Staithes Studio Gallery for the month of August.

We have been sailing around the Saronic Islands and the Argolic Gulf in Greece. In-between pulling ropes I sometimes manage to squeeze in a few quick sketches to work into paintings when I return.
