Junction 42 Over the last few years I have been developing creative art projects for  many of the UK prisons. This has been for the North East Charity Junction 42. I’ve been working for the charity part time for the last six years as an outreach worker in the community with ex-offenders. However I’ve also […]

Newcastle Bridges

Newcastle Bridges, Summer Evening

In an earlier blog post I wrote about a new painting of the Sandhill, Newcastle which features the Tyne Bridge. I spoke about another painting I’d started of Newcastle Bridges on a Summer Evening. It’s a scene I’ve painted before, however on this occasion it’s a much larger watercolour painting. It’s one of my favourite […]

Painting of the Angel

Angel Anniversary

World War One The 15th of February was the 25th Anniversary of the Angel of the North. I recall going to the site a few days after it went up to make studies. Being February, there had been a lot of rain so there were puddles and mud. My initial impression was that of a […]

Newcastle Art Prints

Sandhill, Morning Mist

I was recently asked do a watercolour demonstration for Hartlepool Art Club. They have a fabulous venue in an old church which holds art exhibitions. I had been invited before around 2015 when I did a painting of Newcastle’s Theatre Royal in the rain. The theme this time was still cityscapes so I prepared three […]

Tyne Bridges

Newcastle Quayside

Tyne Bridge Print I regularly have online sales from folk wanting a print of the Tyne Bridge. Orders come in from all over the world. Since my first print of one of my Tyne Bridge Paintings, I’ve had to publish quite a number of different versions. These scenes have been taken from all kinds of […]

Newcastle Quayside and Sage

Newcastle Quayside and Sage Watercolour

Newcastle Paintings The Christmas break gave me the opportunity to do a new painting to add to the Newcastle collection of prints. My painting titled “Tyne Bridges, Summer Sunset” sold out last year. I wanted a new image to replace it that captured Newcastle’s quayside, the Millennium Bridge and the Sage. This particular view taken […]

Holy Island Prints

Holy Island, Low Tide

Holy Island In a previous blog post I wrote about a quick trip to Holy Island so that I could get new reference for a painting project. Crossing at Low Tide on the causeway gives you an immense feeling of space and the vastness of the landscape. I was aware that the time was against […]

Holy Island

Holy Island

Childhood Holidays at Holy Island In the previous post I wrote about a painting project for a client. He has a holiday home on the Northumbrian coast. I’ve painted 4 new watercolours for his property which have been reproduced as limited edition prints. It’s been fun making several trips to parts of the coast which […]

Beadnell harbour

Beadnell Harbour on the Northumbrian Coast

Northumbrian Coast I’ve been working on a large painting project to refurbish a clients property on the Northumbrian Coast. The theme is entered on some of the castles and the small boats that grace Northumberland’s picturesque harbours. Although I do have quite a collection of prints of Northumberland, I felt it would enrich the range […]

Painting of Alnmouth Estuary

Original Watercolour of Alnmouth Estuary in Northumberland

Paintings of Northumberland I’ve been asked to supply a number of my limited edition prints of Northumberland for a property at Alnmouth. These are the types of project which I really enjoy, using my work to help create a space of rest and atmosphere. Alnmouth is a small town situated on the Northumbrian coast. After […]
