I've been drawing and painting on and off for most of my life - in between working as a professional librarian by day (now retired) and a professional musician by night - and have always carried a camera with me. In my younger days, my drawings and watercolours were done seated on a small folding chair with sketchbooks, ink, paper, colours, brushes, pens and all the associated paraphernalia close to hand. I started doing graphic work on my Mac Book Pro, using Photoshop and the less sophisticated Pixelmator, around 2009. In 2018 I tried out the paint program ArtRage, and much of my illustrative work has been done using that program - with my Mac Book, and a Wacom Intuos tablet and stylus. In early 2020 I bought a top end iPad Pro and Apple pencil, and have also been painting with the ProCreate program. Outdoor scenes are documented by high quality reference photographs. No more dodging weather and enduring traffic fumes - except to get to the pub!
I hope you enjoy my illustrations. Check the GALLERY page to see the prints and what's for sale - with prices.
