Giles has been busy whilst I was away in Devon and the new compost bins at the back of the studio are completed and filling up already.


Despite flurries of snow this morning, Spring has arrived at Norton Conyers and there are splashes of colour everywhere. Trees are bursting into leaf and birds beaks are stuffed full of nest building materials.

Fresh from the easel: Sound Of Mull

It has been a busy week in the studio; we're between teaching terms so I have more time for painting. New work has been started and others have been brought to completion, the largest of which is the one I'm working on above: 'Sound Of Mull' oil on canvas 100cm x 100cm. The picture was inspired by our recent return to that beautiful island. Below is the completed painting.


The daffodils are just starting at Norton Conyers heralding a new season. Check the web for details of opening times.
