Dhows, Coming Home

A solitary dhow, moves slowly through the harbour waters, caught in the warm sunlight, to join the other dhows moored for the night. 

This large watercolour was inspired by my sketchbook studies painted on location around the dhow harbour in Kuwait.

Dhows, Sur

When I first visited Sur, a coastal down in Oman famous for Arabian dhow building, I painted several sketchbook watercolours of the dhows.

This small oil painting has been inspired by my "en plein air" studies.

Florence from San Miniato Original

The church of San Miniato provides an excellent vantage point to view the Duomo in Florence. The cathedral church is a UNESCO World Heritage site and the dome remains the largest brick dome ever constructed. This studio painting is based on a sketch painted on location in February.


Grand Canal, Venice

A romantic watercolour painting of Venice in the early morning light. When one paints the Grand Canal in Venice from the Accademia Bridge, one is aware of the many great artists who have painted it before.

The challenge is to interpret this classic scene in a way which captures the light, romance, and beauty of Venice.

Haar on the Forth, Edinburgh, Scotland

Over the years I have painted many bridges. Probably the most dramatic is the Forth Rail Bridge that spans the Firth of Forth. This spectacular view from North Queensferry looking south depicts the bridge rising majestically out of the haar like a Brontosaurus appearing out of some prehistoric swamp.

Iona Abbey

A dramatic original watercolour of the historic island of Iona depicting the abbey silhouetted against a sky full of contrasting clouds.

I spent several days on the island of Mull sketching in watercolour on location. My time spent on Mull included a trip to the smaller island of Iona where I managed only one sketch because of the rain.
