Dawn From Tayport 2

Landscape painting to me isn’t about boats in the harbour or cottages with white walls by turquoise seas.
Pretty villages are notably absent from my subject matter.”    

“The sun, the sky and the earth we walk upon IS my landscape painting. This my reason to paint – the vast basic shapes in a changing sky and the colours of the land beneath it.  As an artist, I don’t need much more than this….just a place to stand.”

I now have a brand new website - Please click to visit
