“There has been plenty of time since my first exhibition to accumulate work from Scotland, Cornwall and France, mostly finished in my studio beside the railway bridge between Chalk Farm and Primrose Hill. These paintings are figurative landscapes in oil on canvas and board. I started to work in oil when I retired over 10 years ago and studied part-time for two years at Central St Martins.

There I learned that my lifelong but very intermittent drawing and painting skills were painfully inadequate and I have had to work continuously from then on to meet this challenge of painting the scene.”
