My very first paintings were water colours painted as a student in the early 1980s. Since then I have taken 40 years to get back to them having watched numerous tutorials and experimenting. Inspirations have been Trevor Waugh, Terry Harrison and Charles Evans. Most of my pieces are originals from either En Plain Air work or photographs that I have taken. However, some are my versions of other artists/photographers work either from online images or video tutorials. In all such cases I have tried to gain permission and attribution where required.
