Looking Back from Crew Green. In February, whilst walking the Severn Way near Crew Green, I looked back to the snowcapped hills of Wales before crossing the river into Shropshire; a sad departure from the wild, upper reaches.

Winter Beets above the Severn. I jog past this scene most mornings but on this particular February day, I stopped to absorb the various ingredients in order to recreate this stunning view.

The Morning Chimes from Shrewsbury. After spending a very cold night in Montford Bridge, I set off early on my walk to Shrewsbury and was greeted with this frosty view and the distant peal of bells.

The Blues and Greys of Winter. Whilst out walking my dog recently I was attracted by this scene of a winter river; a magical mix of subtle blues and greys.

Approaching the Shropshire Border. The river, livestock and a stunning spring morning were all the ingredients I needed to create this quintessential scene near Crew Green.

Twilight Bivouac. Sleeping rough by the river may not be for everyone but for me it offers opportunities, like this, to live and breathe the calm that comes with twilight.

Cheese and Pickle Again. This was my first thought when I saw these two Severn estuary anglers one Saturday lunchtime. When I stop to sketch a subject, my first thought often becomes the title.

An Old Friend. I ventured up Plynlimon, source of the Severn, last January in appalling weather; the solitude and failing light only adding to the experience. Despite this, and the prospect of spending a night on the mountain, I was with my old friend.

Walking the Dog. The two trees in this composition represent a lovely lady and her dog who I met whilst sketching the river at Caersws in Powys. She had lived by the river for fifty years where her late husband had taught their children to swim.

The Mustard Jumper. The memory of the mustard jumper my Nan knitted to keep me warm whilst winter fishing was the inspiration behind this painting.

Ebb and Flow. Clevedon Pill. I can spend all day walking the estuary but the magic so often happens in a brief moment at sunset; one of the joys of painting on-site.

Handmade, Manmade. I could have easily walked past this subject but I was curious enough to explore the contrast between two very different structures.

An Ebbing Tide Marked the End of Summer. I painted this on-site, just below Sharpness, on a day where the afternoon closed in and I could smell autumn in the air.
