Classical Cornish promenade town and my home since 2005


About the town

Newlyn is my most painted subject and I love it it is a great mass of land with tiny buildings that change with the light. It is a working Port and has a modern and ancient harbour.It is full of interesting characters and so far has proved endless in things to paint and draw. From the Prom at Penzance, you see it magically twinkling at night and in the daytime it is faded and blue with Fishing boats spewing in and out. Just wonderful

Oil painting is a slow process because you have to wait and be patient when adding layers it is however worth the wait as the finished results are worth it.


Gouache is bright and strong and is great for working out doors for fresh immediate results and is easy to transport and work with and that's why I just I love it


I like to take acrylic painting out with me when I am plain air painting but only occasionally as I now paint mainly in oil. I love acrylic and I also love oil
