Going Bigger with Steve PP!

I’m very excited to be sharing the first of a new, half sheet size watercolour with you. So many of you have asked me if I have any larger paintings. Up until now I have been focusing on the smaller 12 x 9 inches size that can be more comfortably worked on outdoors on location. […]

The Warmth of Spring

Who doesn’t love the smell of the sea , carried across the sand on a warm wind. The Warmth of Spring is so uplifting! Gorse bushes full of fragrant honeyed yellow blossom and the seabirds making their nests. Yes! Spring is in full effect on the coast. WIth that comes the chance to get outdoors […]

The past few weeks I’ve taken advantage of the fantastic light and cold , clear conditions that have embraced our coastline. Such a joy to get out and suck in some of that fresh, salty sea air! Have a great weekend!

Indian Summer

The joys of an Indian Summer in Devon are plentiful. Clear, crisp light, warm days and quieter beaches. September and October this year came up trumps. Such was the wealth of great conditions for being outdoors and painting all that these two glorious months had to offer. Long shadows and rich Autumnal colours. Enjoy some […]

The Heat is On!

Well, Spring seemed to slip by in a chilly blur with what seemed liked a whole month of cold winds. May however hasn’t dissapointed so far. With an air pattern starting way down in Morocco , we have been treated to some Spring warmth, that feels more like high Summer and what a difference it […]

On top of the World

February and March were two months that were all about Africa. Some brave souls from our North Devon community went to climb Mt.Meru next to Mt.Kilimanjaro,┬áto raise money for a Cancer Support Centre in the area. I painted this first scene as a gift for one of the walkers and his family, to help promote […]

Spring’s a Knocking!

Ah, the joys of Spring. While we are not quite out of Winter’s grip, there are definite signs that the seasons are changing. On a good day , you can feel the warmth in the sun. During spells of quiet calm , free from gales and rain, you can hear birdsong. The clocks have sprung […]

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! A good time of year for being an artist living on the edge of our island realm. January is a month of extremes. The New Year revellers that descend on the coast can make the place seem as busy as it is in high summer. Then literally overnight , they are gone, […]
