Curbar Gritstone Edge, Derbyshire, acrylics on canvas.
An autumn walk along Curbar Edge, a few miles from my studio, looking for patterns and warmth in the landscape.
I currently have paintings on show and for sale at The George Hotel, Hathersage, in Derbyshire’s beautiful Peak District (S32 1BB). Do try to call in and have a look if you’re in the area.
It’s a great place to visit too!

All paintings begin, physically, as sketches and notes. The second image here is a sketch for a commissioned portrait.
Tango inspired painting is a new theme for 2012
This painting was inspired by the changing winter colours as I travelled through the Derbyshire countryside to visit the company that does such a wonderful job of framing my work. These journeys gives me time to look and begin to form ideas of how next I will paint my local landscapes.
