I'm very much looking forward to our upcoming show next month in Bradford on Avon. Many of you are already planning to come so it promises to be fun! Here is more information about it:
"Three Wessex Sketchers - Capturing the light"
at the West Barn, Barton Farm in Bradford on Avon BA15 1LF (UK)
From Saturday 2 May to Monday 4 May (bank holiday)
10am to 5.30 pm - Free entry
Private view: Saturday evening from 6pm-10pm
The show will feature paintings from Bob Child, Andrew Taylor and myself. We all share the same passion for painting and a love of nature and architecture and we all work in a spontaneous and energetic way, trying to capture the light with paint. The show will feature work produced in plein air and also in studio. There will also be a large choice of original prints, cards and postcards.

We usually get many families popping by, so there will be a little drawing/craft corner for children and for the curious artists, we will display our material, painting boxes and brushes so you can have a better idea of how we work. Bob, Andrew and myself will be there the whole time during the three days so come and say hi!
For those who can't make it, have a look on our websites. You can email us to reserve/purchase paintings online:
