This is just a small selection of pages from my sketch books, soft pastel work: the hills in Keswick, Broughton in Milton Keynes, Saltburn and the Whitley Bay area. All work is done en plein air, I love to paint from life.

When I have more time I'll be putting up more variety, but at the moment I need to get out and paint before the summer is over...

Keswick & Wales


Evening light: from Milton Keynes to Whitley Bay, and Saltburn inbetween!

Sketches from Milton Keynes

I would always meet such friendly people when out sketching in my local area. It was a beautiful wide open landscape, despite being only minutes from the M1; such a sense of space, wonderful to watch the evening light from any of the several bridges.
