The sparkling autumn light is stunning. From a painter’s point of view is more interesting than summer light. I find it ironic that there’s less light around but its better quality, from an artists’ point of view. I still have not adjusted to the clocks going back last month, and I am still waking at 5 -5.30am!

Shadows were my first love. They still are. It’s hard to find any painting of mine without blue/mauve/purple/brown shadows. When I get hold of an idea I can get quite obsessive about it. Lately, it’s been early morning light.
Gower boasts two gems that most visitors never see. They are Three Chimneys, a set of sea arches, and a massive rock pool known as Blue Pool.

A circular walk across Rhossili Downs taking in the spectacular views of Rhossili Bay and Worms Head.

The joy of painting long landscape paintings of the Gower coastline.
Homes is important to me. It’s part of the reason why I love painting people’s homes and streetscapes. David Fry sent me some beautiful poetry about a house I painted in swansea.
