Original Seascapes, Waterscapes and Coastal Art
As you'll have seen, I love to paint the sea and other nautical subjects, and am currently working on a series of canvasses and prints called 'Fred and Joan'. These paintings tell the story of an elderly couple's retirement to the coast, and how they spend their days reminiscing and enjoying the seaside.
By way of background, I am a Graphic Designer who has worked for many household names in agencies and in-house studios for the best part of 40 years. Now that I am a freelance designer and artist, I have the opportunity to spend more of my time sketching and painting - something I've always enjoyed since I was a young boy. Last year I was thrilled to have been selected for one of the heats of Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year 2019 - you can view a timelapse of the 4-hour challenge here. Click on episode one and I'm about halfway down the artist list.
With most of my artworks I like to try and go beyond just a pretty picture, and to introduce a narrative or story that adds a little intrigue or something unusual. This might be a man-made element, or sometimes people, just to take the painting beyond what a camera might capture and to add something extra. I generally use acrylics on stretched canvas, and often adopt a dry brush technique in the closing stages of a piece to add a more 'sketchy' quality to certain areas or features (for example, clouds or spray).
I live in central England with my wife Rachel, our two teenage boys and our dog Molly. I look forward to adding to my portfolio of works over the coming months and years, and of course I am happy to discuss commissions or bespoke pieces - please see the contact page for more information.
