My apologise for not posting for a while.
This painting is a view of piccadilly, London.
The horse statues on the left are in a fountain of water at the entrance to an hotel which I am afraid I cant remember the name of. I think it adds some interest to the composition.
I hope you like this one.
I hope all bloggers out there have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

This subject was inspired by a good painting friend of mine Alan. This image shows a typical scene of days gone bye when chaps enjoyed a pint in their local pub. The little terrier looks on hoping to taste the last few drops from its owners glass. I hope it brings back a few memories for you.

Manchester as changed considerably over recent years. The buildings with glazed facades compliment the surviving old buildings I feel. Painted on full imperial Bockingford paper and with large brush. This subject appeals to me with at touch of old and new.

Today watercolour shows a scene from the past. Sadly alot of our architecture as dissappeared with town modernisation. Using reference from an old B+W photo I have tried to recreate the atmoshere of the time. Done on full imperial paper, this was painted rapidly to maintain the looseness but to suggest detail were possible.

Last night I demonstrated my watercolour techniques at Dewsbury Art Society. A lovely audience who encouraged my improvisation of a Northern Town Scene. Having painted this scene before "Market Day", I decided to introduce horses and cart and at the request of a viewer an old penny farthing. Can you see it? Any ideas for a title.

I`m getting ready for a solo exhibition at Art Decor Gallery Whalley on the 18th March. I am introducing some larger image sizes (full imperial) 30" x 22". I quite like getting the the bigger brushes out for this size of work. Keeping it loose can be my dilemma and its always tempting to fiddle with detail. Venice again!!!!! ah well, " paint what you enjoy" thats my moto.
