Thursday 13th February 2020Madeira

‘Madeira’ is the result of my first visit to the island with my partner, Alison, in 2018. It’s an extraordinary island. Just 14 x 70 miles in size, it’s packed with zones of different terrains. The light is clean and bright and everything from bananas to bougainvillea grows in the fertile land.‬

Thursday 13th February 2020Red Grooves, New Original and Print

This old house sits in Teesdale, between Westgate and Langdon Beck. 'Red Grooves' is surrounded by drift mines and backed by a long, deep scar that could have been formed by a melting glazier. It could either have been a farmhouse (there are crumbling remains of outbuildings too) or a mining manager’s house, as iron ore, coal and lead were all mined in that area. Both original and print are for sale.
 

A little further down the valley lies Flushimere and Flushimere House, which I have also painted.

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 12th November 2019Countryfile, Sunday 1st December

I spent an excellent 2 days with Countryfile‘s Matt and Dan last week as they filmed me painting near Stagshaw, Corbridge for the show. It will be screened at 6 pm on 1st Dec and the theme of the programme is Teesdale and Northumberland. 
 
Producer Matt Smith wanted to see me exploring Northumberland to find windows, houses and landscapes to paint and we went up past Stagshaw, Corbridge, to film at Wall Fell Farm. Next, we walked across to Great Whittington Fell and filmed a window there.
 
 
This was at Wall Fell Farm. Filming finished up in my Prudhoe gallery.
