End of 2018

High Power’, Ludlow, acrylic on paper, 2019

Over the last few weeks I have finished some paintings.

‘High Power’ is of Ludlow Castle, commanding the River Teme from the high promontory. It was the first stone castle to be built in England around 1066.

‘Under the Stones’, Harlech Castle, acrylic on canvas 2019


Harlech was built by Edward 1 in the late 13th century,  and keeps watch over Snowdonia seeming to grow naturally out of the rock. One of the most formidable in an iron ring of fortresses though it was taken by Welsh leader Owain Glyn Dwr in 1404.

In between I have been working on the Frome Open Studios – updating the website with copy and a new theme for 2019.

And having prepared a pastel drawing for my upcoming course ‘Urban Landscapes’ in January Trowbridge Town Hall, I am now ready to start work on  a painting for the Fifty Bees project 2019!

‘After the March’, Trafalgar Square, pastels, 2019
