Friday 06th March 2020Moorhouse - Work in Progress

My latest work in progress features Moorhouse, above Catton in Allendale.
 
This time last year, I was going for a blood transfusion in Hexham hospital. My good friend Chaz asked me I wanted to go anywhere, and we drove to Moorhouse and discovered these cottages. The photographs were quite inspiring and may lead to further paintings in due course. 
 
 
We also went to Limestone Brae, which also resulted in the painting below. Prints of 'Limestone Brae' are available and you are welcome to come into the gallery to see 'Moorhouse' develop.

Thursday 05th December 2019Great Whittington Fell - Progression

'Great Whittington Fell' is the painting Countryfile filmed me painting, and they asked to see this progressive sequence of the work developing. The window is probably an old pantry window and the abandoned building is just north of Corbridge and Stagshaw, near the Errington Cofffee House.
 
 
The image on the left is the finished painting and print. In fact, when I returned to Great Whittington Fell with Countryfile for the filming, in the strong light of day, I saw that the stone had a slightly greener tinge, and I needed to rework it. The painting and prints are now on show in my gallery in Prudhoe.

Friday 22nd November 2019Great Whittington Fell, Countryfile

 Countryfile filmed me painting in two Northumbrian locations - the show will be screened on Sunday 1st December. One location was this old building just north of Corbridge, above Stagshaw, near the Errington Arms - many of you will recognise it.

Matt and Dan from Countryfile filmed me painting from the inside of the old building, looking out through a window to the north. The second location was Wall Fell Farm and they also filmed me in my Prudhoe gallery.

Tuesday 20th August 2019Quarry Man's Cottage, Carrara

It was late October when Alison and I spotted this cottage in Tuscany, in the quarry from which Michelangelo bought his marble. It was a bright day, extraordinary in October, according to the locals, and the light was outstanding. This little house has survived several devastating earthquakes.
 
 
 
This is one of six new originals showing from next week in my gallery, and is also available as a print.

Tuesday 20th August 2019Belmount Farm

 For over 35 years, I have watched Belmount Farm slowly deteriorate. Wherever I have been in the world, this farm and the surrounding landscape have stayed in my mind, and I have returned to painting it once more. There was a rainbow in the sky on this day, and a fine drizzle coming down all around it.
 
 
This is just one of six new originals that I am showing in the gallery from next week - a rare opportunity to see such a body of my new work. 'Belmount Farm' is also available as a print.
