On the web since 2000 

Prints are now sold through Aquila Art Limited, which is run by my wife Jill. This has allowed me to focus more fully on the creation of originals.

I have a business page on Facebook, which is where I post most regularly. Please visit and "Like" my page to receive updates or follow me on Twitter.

Open House / Studio Saturday 9th December 10am - 4pm
A few of Comrie's creative people are opening their doors to the public. Come and have a look around and see what they've been up to.

Studio Visits

You are most welcome to visit our home/gallery by appointment. The house is filled with artwork for sale and you can look in the studio to see what I've been painting recently and wander through the rooms full of artwork. Around the house there are over ninety prints and original paintings on display. Seeing art in the context of furnished rooms can be a useful way of visualising how they could look in your own home.

This is the roe buck that I posted "in progress" in the last newsletter. Here I've reversed the order adding the completed painting at the top.

Field Trip to Glen Affric
A couple of weeks ago I was exploring Glen Affric in preparation for a project. I timed my visit well with spectacular autumn colours and the first snow on the mountains. From this one trip I saw enough stunning painting ideas to keep me going for a few years. I can't speak too highly of this beautiful glen. The photos below are a tiny selection from my week away; giving a taste of hopefully artwork to come.
